Let me tell you, picking a winner for this contest has been REALLY HARD.  I love all the finalists so much, and for different reasons! I'm kind of excited that we ended up with such a great representation of talent across three media (manipulation, traditional, and digital!).  All all three finalists had really interesting and pointed write-ups, too! I've been pulling my hair out the last few days trying to pick, but I have finally chosen!

The winner is :iconjuhani: for her beautiful manipulation from this stock image by Tasastock!  Almost every part of this image was touched and changed with skill and precision resulting in a striking work of art that really pulls the viewer in! 

Congratulations Juhani!  I will be helping to coordinate your prizes.  And I sincerely thank everyone for participating in the stock, art, and voting portions of this contest! :thanks:  I will hopefully have a new fun challenge ready for you soon!

In the meantime, if you feel like making some stock: check out this great contest from kirilee STOCK CONTEST - INSPIRATIONG'day folks,
I am two days over due, but here it is. A contest ONLY for stock!
The theme is 'Inspiration'
And I can hear some of you already going... "What the??? That is a bit BROAD!"
Well there is a twist.
You need to find inspiration from another stock artist.
The idea of this is to push you outside of your comfort zone and create an stock image (or series) that you never thought you would create.
Which other stock artist do you watch and go "Wow!", I wish I could be more like them?
To be clear, this is not having you re-create their image/ series. It is about you taking inspiration from that series and putting your own spin on it
I've done it personally quite a number of times...

Here are the ten semifinalists (in alphabetical order by artist) for the art portion of the In Perspective contest!  They all made skilled use of the stock and wrote interesting and compelling remarks about the theme of self perspective. Please take some time to check them out then vote in the poll to help select the three finalists!
