    “Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it” - Confucious

    Undoubtedly, this is what Starscape had in mind when he challenged the forum to depict "beauty" for this month's challenge - that we would find beauty in those things where we might not normally look for it, and it appears that is the very thing he brought out of us :thumbsup:.

    So, take a gander and vote - it's a beautiful thing!

    My money's on Klaus as well. While the art is exceptional as always, his concept really clicked for me.

    Klaus, Klaus, he's our man ... ;)

    Really, a beautiful, stark, unique image of Starship Earth; I don't think I've ever seen one where the planet looked as if it were black and white, and it's an interesting perspective. And it gets my vote :bolian:.

    Well done, also, Starscape and WillsBabe; two very dissimilar approaches to the concept, and yet both of them very appropriate. Huzzah!

    Well, since the end of the poll is well past, and we don't seem to have any hanging chads or a near-tie, demanding a recount, it appears that Klaus's entry was beautiful to the eyes of the most beholders. Congratulations, Klaus! Well done, you beautiful thing, you! :D

    As you well know, you get to end 2007 by challenging your fellow members, artists and non-artists, with the task of your choice - we know from experience that yours will be a good one, indeed.

    Kudos, as well, to the rest of the entrants - everyone had a great entry, and a unique vision of beauty, as it should be! Good to see a relatively new face among those entries, too, WillsBabe, and we hope to see more of you in the months to come. Thanks to Starscape for the challenge; clearly, it touched us on many levels :bolian:.
