When I chose a color as the theme for October, I was looking for a bit of a break from tradition, opting for something a bit more abstract than many of the themes we usually tackle. And when I asked professional photographer D. Sharon Pruitt of Utah to be our judge, I had unconventionality in mind as well.

She didn't disappoint.

"I spent quite a few hours narrowing down the photos to the Top 50," she writes. "I based my selections not on technical quality, but selected photos based on theme, concepts, and the emotions evoked when viewing them.

"Some photos made me laugh, others made me feel nostalgic, and others gave me a sense of hope and empowerment. The best photos come from the heart, not from the camera."

Sharon listed those emotions and concepts beside each one of her photo choices; we added them as captions into the Final 50 gallery.

Given how technical some of our judges have been, Sharon's approach is good experience for any of us entering our photos in competitions.

So here are Sharon's Final 50 choices in a full-screen gallery. We'll post the Voting Machine tomorrow.

And don't forget the November contest, with the theme Silhouettes. Here's a look at the entries received so far.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
