Well, we finally finished the scoring of over a hundred photos. And to keep it as simple as possible Nature Boy, Naked Whiz and I picked our 10 favorite photos from each category and then numbered those 10 in order of preference.
We then combined our score cards and tallied up the numbers. The photos with the highest combined scores won. [p]We chose one winner per category and an overall 'Grand Champion'.
The GC was chosen for having the highest score of all the entries in all categories.[p]Thanks to everyone who submitted and participated. The whole process was a lot of fun and we got to see a boatload of great photos. And a big thanks to Naked Whiz, Nature Boy, Dutch, LawnRanger, EggMaster and BBQ Bob Trudnak for donating the prizes.
