    Default Voting polls for the AP Challenge contest 19



    ************************************************** ***************

    Here's the voting polls for the AP Challenge contest 19.


    Around the middle of each month a voting poll will be posted for the previous Challenge contest. The image with the highest number of votes will be used in the final poll. Should we end up with a tie both images will be submitted in the 'Best of' final voting.
    The finals will consist of the winning images for Challenges 17, 18 and 19.

    We had so many entries in challenge 19 that I had to split it into 2 polls. Remember to vote for just one!!!!

    Poll 1

    Poll 2


    Ivo from StarTools will be donating a free license for his StarTools software (here's a link to his website Welcome | StarTools) for the best completed Challenge image, one license will be awarded for the best post processed Challenge image of the 3 Challenge contests. (ie this one will be for Challenge 17, 18 and 19).

    AND if you are interested in participating, here's a link to the current Challenge! LINK
    Thanks for voting!

    My goodness, this was one difficult challenge to decide who produced the best image. It almost came down to "eeny, meeny, chili beany"!!!

    Well done to all,

    Hi Gordon. What a fantastic gallery of fine work here. I had to start writing numbers down to finally narrow down the list. It would seem that part of the challenge extends out to us voters too. All very fine examples of the excellent talent that we have on here. Thanks for coordinating this AP Challenge contest 19 Gordon, and the best of luck to all of the great participants.
