Shay, it's a mammoth task to generate such an exhibition so I thank you indeed!

Luckily, we had plenty of extra-good photos to choose from. I think this exhibition is one of the better challenge exhibitions in a long time. What a creative bunch we are!

    @Shay -- thanks for all of the heavy lifting! You did *a lot* of work here.

    It looks like I picked 8 of the 25 winners. I wonder who picked the most winners?

    It's interesting to see the full scores (thanks Shay).

    I'm relieved to see I'm not the only one to post a shot that got no votes!

    I am now trying to work out if it's better to have one shot that outscores the rest by a mile (showing I can hit the sweet spot occasionally) or an even spread (showing consistency).

    @C_N_RED_AGAIN - day 1 just had it all!

    Great job by all and an even greater job by Shay   

    Very enjoyable to scroll through the top picks again and also good to see the voting table.

    Having a honorable mention for the outtakes also brought out something special (allthough the daily thread shot was even more special)
    Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

    Thanks for putting this together. I think I was the only one that missed voting. Been busy. Looking at the votes either my day one pick was really good or the rest of them sucked haha. Again thanks for the mods putting this together. Chris

    As Joe suggested, it is highly recommended to go over the thumbnails and the voting threads. While preparing the Exhibition I discovered some overlooked photos and some comments which were added later - it was a great joy!
    And here are the full numbers (in case you are interested...):

    Huge thanks to Shay for organising the week and the voting - and more huge thanks to those who voted and commented. Especial thanks to gregia, minolta-mutley and bonneville for voting for shots of mine that no one else picked - it's nice to know someone liked them!

    Shay,
    Thanks very much for running Week 50 this year, and for putting together this Grande Finale Exhibition which showcases the efforts of the participants as well as the very special qualities that the 'normal' 50mm lens brings to photography, especially at its wider open settings.
    A pleasure to have participated, to have written and read some comments, and to have seen the imaginative variety on offer across the extremes of the northern winter and the southern summer.
    Obviously a fuller snapshot of Week 50 is able to be seen in the Thumbnails Thread for anyone wishing to explore it.
