Well done everyone. A great gallery all around. Thanks to those who voted for my photo, it's my first time so it means a lot, especially to be displayed alongside such great talent.

I've really enjoyed this challenge but wish I'd had time to do all the songs.
In 2012 after months of tests I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. I'm 46 and suddenly life makes sense. I don't mean to offend with my comments so please tell me if I do so I can put it right.

It was (and still is) a very demanding challenge for me. Congratulations to everyone participating, but first and foremost I have to applaud the 'heroes' that posted full 10+10 pictures and bonus songs as well. Bravo!

I agree with you Sue - it was challenging. The first part (presented above) a bit less than the second part. But it was nice to force myself to do something unusual. In majority of cases I'm an observer who registers the world around. This time it was a lot of planning and thinking about what to shoot. Good exercise. So thank you for this challenge and great work everyone!

What a great exhibition. This was very challenging and yet enjoyable too. Tim had the hardest part to play in putting this exhibition together so many thanks Tim
Surprising to me is that I'm actually finding the next 10 a lot easier, But the proof in the pudding is in the eating.

I'm late getting to this thread, congrats to all and thanks for including one of my photos. I have been buried in work and have been a bit under the weather the last week or so and as a result have not been participating in round 2. It was a fun challenge and I look forward to participating in more in the future. (Hint, hint MiPr CYC IV).

Thanks to Tim for providing a fun and challenging exhibition for us to work on.

I think so many of the photos are really involving and thoughtful (and creative). Thanks to all who mentioned my photos and congratulations to all who all whose images were chosen - good work all - including many of the images that weren't in the final group. I'm sorry I wasn't able to continue contributing to the second part, but I've been swamped with unexpected work in the last week and a half and haven't even picked up my camera in that time. I hope there'll be another of this type of challenge in the future. I've appreciated the opportunity to join in.

Great exhibition, and thanks again to @Tigertimb and @Jetsplace and any others of those who dreamed up, organised, and ran this challenge over the course a full month. A mighty task.
It represents so much work, but I'm sure that all the participants, as well as the Dyxum community at large, are most appreciative.
I'm a relative newcomer to this level of participation (now that I'm semi-retired), and have loved being part of recent challenges (Week 50, Challenge Yourself III, and Pic-a-Song 2012). They get you out there with your camera when you wouldn't otherwise dream of doing so, get you thinking about how to respond to each challenge, photographing, post-processing and selecting what you're prepared to post, given opportunities to post out-takes, and inviting comments on others' images as well as having your own entries commented on - all most valuable in terms of improving your own abilities.
Thanks to those who appreciated and commented on my entries, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the Pic-a-Song 2012 Exhibition Part 2 posted here in a few days.
