Time to close voting and move on with the choices for the 10 best "Nighttime" photos. There's a little wrinkle this time, thanks to the honesty of our judge.
As you know, our judge, Lance Keimig, teaches a night photography class at the New England School of Photography in Kenmore Square in Boston. During the judging, he realized that some of the photos may have been taken by former students. A quick check of Flickr accounts verified his suspicions.
Knowing that this happens, and may even be inevitable, in the small world of New England photography, I asked him to still choose his Top 10. But we agreed that we would verify his choices by asking another pro, Christian Waeber, to also choose the 10 photos he deemed the best.
Christian is a native of Switzerland who moved to Boston in 1993. He specializes in photographing architecture, night shots, and figures -- mostly nudes. He has had numerous individual and group shows, and his photos have been published in a variety of magazines, including View Camera, Preservation, and Artscope. You can read more about his photography on his bio page, and look over his resume here.
So this is the plan: I will take Lance's Top 10, Christian's Top 10, the voters' Top 10, and generate a Top 10 list based on input from all three sources. Then Christian will choose the First, Second, and Third Place finishers in order.
The finalists are on the way ...
