Announcing the Midnight Sun Resurrection Can Photoshop winner

Actually, the contest had winners. It's a tie!

Believe it or not, "It's a Can" (entry No. 3), by Benjamin Fry, and "Twilight Resurrection" (entry No. 6), by the husband-and-wife team of Alexander D. Mitchell IV and Jenny Heidewald each got 24 votes. ...

I had to spend hours going through each comment by hand, deleting votes cast twice by the same IP address under different names. Thanks for playing fair, everybody. All in all, I ended up cutting about seven or eight fake votes.

Congrats to both of the artists. Now, I'm going to see what we can award you both as prizes. And thanks, everybody, for submitting some hilarious photos.

Weak. Should have been 6 in a landslide.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I can assure you that my wife's family cast two separate votes from separate computers on the same house's DSL account..... Not that it's worth arguing about........ or is it? <:-D

Here are the 'shops I didn't submit as an entry, I had a really fun time making them. (click)

I just want to thank those innovators at microsoft paint for providing an inexpensive alternative to photoshop. and to everyone who voted. I personally liked the aqua teen beer force.

Awesome, thanks to everyone who voted, and thank you, Sam! Congrats to Benjamin as well. :)

I had fun with the challenge of making the can and tower work together. I am flattered by the kind comments, maybe I should go into ad work? :) (Also, for the record I have a legal copy of Photoshop Elements.)

Re: voting: One of my folks didn't realise that the other had already cast a vote, and then, not being used to the delay in posting, thought they had something wrong and submitted again. Oops!
