Tough call as each image is unique and took much time and work. Much appreciate the effort! For its mesmerizing effect I have to go with "rumples riot".

First of all, congratulations to Corn for a well deserved win! :waytogo:

I would like to thank all of you for the wonderful comments about my sketch. I can't believe that so many of you actually voted for it. Your kind words are worth more to me than any T-shirt (even a CN one ;) ).

While I agree that comparing sketches to images is apples to oranges, I feel that the exposure the Sketching Forum gets from these contests is more important than winning the contest itself. We astro-sketchers are not a very competitive bunch, and we enjoy sharing our observations, techniques, and helping one another to improve our observational and drawing skills. I hope that some of you will stop by the Sketching Forum to see the extraordinary observations and artwork that is posted daily (and by many more talented folks than myself). Perhaps some of you will even take up astro-sketching for yourselves. Now that would be a big win for the Sketching Forum! :cool:

Thank you all again, and clear skies!

Jason Aldridge

All the entries where outstanding, and it seems it gets tougher and tougher to choose one entry over another. You should all be congratulated on your fine work. I did vote for Corn's image, the composition is what did it fir me.
