The Winners of the Invisible Challenge!

As you may remember, we announced this contest to find the best photographers solving the impossible. We asked you (and them) to take images of things nobody could see. They had to capture the look of the never-seen and they DID IT!

Rules were simple but strict and for some contestants, unsolveable. The images had to be new, taken after the announcement of the Challenge. This rule was easily followed. The images had to depict something that is unseen. Even this part was clear. The entries had to state their theme and include the icon of our group in the artist description to display participation. This rule was a real killer! Over four fifths of the applications were rejected because one or all of the requirements were missing. But some photographers took the rules seriously, and those entries were already featured in our last journal (link to the Runners' Up blog below), or, as the case may be, they will be featured now.

We admins had our own problems, too, partly caused by the Malevolent Fates, and partly due to our everyday needs and issues, that we missed the moment of the deadline. We checked the poll just before the deadline, as well as the next morning, and the poll position changed in between... This is why we won't announce a separate first and second place, but instead we will declare two winners.

But before we announce winners, let's take a look at the wonderful third-place finish by stevenfields:

Stating this entry is a "glorious deviation" is not an exaggeration because his beautiful Tea Time received a Daily Deviation during the Challenge—we are very glad to applaud him, and to say a heartfelt 'thank you' to the suggester AlexanderPaupoff and the featuring CV Mrs-Durden. Many Congratulations!

Here is a fine selection from Steven's gallery:

Harvest Moon Fanfic -2- Ch. 1TWISTED (title of story)
Chapter 1: Farmer
The green leaves on the trees were blowing in the wind, causing them to fall to the ground. The dew of spring caressed the small island in the early morning. I could feel the wind on my back, and the sun on my head as they brushed against my skin. The island was lively that day, as the morning rays struck down to the ground and I could sense vibes of peace from the villagers. They all had gathered in Meadow Island. Sheep walked around, grazing on the grassy earth. Mirabelle, the judge and founder of the festival, stood behind a counter in the center of the island, talking to villagers and people competing in the best sheep contest.
I sat under a tree farther away from the crowd, enjoying the shade instead of the hot spring sun. My eyes were heavy from the lack of sleep the night before, and my arms were crossed across my chest. I had a great start on the island. After being shipwrecked with Taro and his family, we had decided without hesitatio
   Harvest Moon Fanfic -2- Ch. 2Chapter 2: Phone Call
The hours had passed by as if they were only seconds. During this time, Julia, Natalie, Lanna and I had settled on the bedroom floor in the animal shop and were busy sharing secrets, gossiping, things a girl would do during a sleepover. Minutes after we had settled down for the night, around twelve, a faint noise peeked out through the shadows. I felt as if this was a horror movie. A girl, innocent and young, was doing nothing to bug others, just attending to her own business sleeping, planting flowers, whatever it was she did. Then suddenly, something attacks her, causing pain and horror. She, and anyone else who is close to her, are never the same again in their life.
I slowly sat up in my bed, my mind triggering to that horror of a story that had been on T.V late that night. I remember sitting up on the couch, arms tightly wrapped around my pillow, tears flowing down my face and eyes glued to the T.V. The story was addicting, yet frightening at the same time. I

Is this group still alive? :?
TheStockWarehouse Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, but there aren't many submissions. I end up inviting articles, news, CSS and Widget backgrounds and the like into the gallery. You are free to submit anything related to groups into the group's gallery. Check the folders for more information.

I put out a blog now and then but am a bit overwhelmed being an admin to twenty groups and a club among my sites. If you wish to write a blog or submit I'm open for submissions! I could use the help to get the group more active.

I do have a list of FAQs on the profile page for group admins to find. It is just me and my other account running the group, so I'm open to suggestions.

Thank you for your comment!

You might want to use this. Your welcome banner is stretching off my screen and it's sad to see it do that. The overall page is nicely designed. Especially the top. 

Well good luck continuing to run the group
