***JANUARY PHOTO Contest -- FINALS***

Our theme this month is: In Honor of the Roman God, Janus (god of doors, beginnings and endings, transitions facing forwards and backwards)

We ran three preliminary threads, one of which was quite a bit more competitive than the other two, so I am going to use host's prerogative and expand the finals to 9 photos.

For the first time, under our new rules, the winner will NOT have to host the next contest. However, the winner will be awarded the prize of selecting the theme for the FEBRUARY contest and communicating the theme to the VOLUNTEER Host for February, Mira, by February 1st.

Here are the FINALISTS, in alphabetical order. Please vote for your favorite photo which best represents the theme of the JANUARY Contest. Finals will run for 72 hours.


Cathedrale Sainte-Marie-Majeure de Marseille.... ginormous doors.




Doorway Back to the Hidden City




Facing forward or facing back



Gate



Secret Garden



The Journey Begins




Transit to the sea




Tug-of-Times



"Woe, destruction, ruin, and decay''

1. All great photos!

It was a toss up between "Gate" and "Secret Garden" for me, but I am partial to lush, tranquil, green, cozy landscapes. The rest were also lovely.

19. Trying to follow instructions like a good boy....

"Please vote for your favorite photo which best represents the theme of the JANUARY Contest."

which is......"In Honor of the Roman God, Janus (god of doors, beginnings and endings, transitions facing forwards and backwards).

To my eyes, although all are lovely shots, only two really fit the theme: "Doorway Back to the Hidden City" and "Tug-of-Times", as they both show old and new and beginnings and endings, with the former best demonstrating the theme - particularly with the fog adding to its intrigue.

36. This was another difficult decision for me

All photos are absolutely stunning. Woe, destruction, ruin and decay has a Roman architecture feel to it while I see people shapes in various clouds.
