Hey SAK Kollectors Where did the they post the winners and the winning shots/kollections/interviews etc I had a wee look for this on the Vic website recently (including the competition page where you could see the initial entries) and could not find anything Maybe I'm being dumb or looking in the wrong place :O But I'd love to properly check out all the winners - I did see a page about the Chinese guy!ThanksPS. Thanks for the link to the Hobie vid El C.Still bummed about JB not winning
I wonder if TES, Sneider, or Chako entered... I've seen some very drool worthy stuff from those guys...
Chako's entry:(Image removed from quote.)
In Chako's case they probably said, "this guy doesn't need ANY MORE SAKS!"

If Jazz has one thing against him, it's that his picture looks too professional. Whoever filters the lousy photos from the contenders may wrongly assume that this couldn't possibly be the work of some dude who collects penknives, and that he's trying to pass off some corporate advertising shot as his own. In which case the picture could be disqualified - which would of course be a huge injustice.
Thanks for the nice comments, guys. I think I had two things go against me. First and most importantly, my picture really only grabs you at high resolutions when you can see all the detail in it. For the context they shrank the images down to (IIRC) something like 600px wide. The original image is 6000px wide and the version I posted here was 2000px, which is the minimum I think you need to get the full effect. Basically they were looking at an images that was about 10% of the size of the the one I posted here and 1% of the original size. The second issue was the multiple submissions with the boxes and no boxes. I should heave just submitted the no boxes image once and that was it. But with all the confusion of "did it or did it not get posted" I submitted twice, which I think hurt the effort. In the end it was a fun project for me and I got a great picture out of it. Even got a 36" x 24" print made up that I'm going to frame and hang in my office.
