|Lisa's Hat by Ronald Cowie -- Second Place Winner|
Cowie's Leaving Babylon portfolio features beautiful images of a world that is familiar, yet also eerily dream-like. Making the work even more dynamic, Cowie's images are gorgeous platinum prints, which he prints himself. See Cowie's work on the Photographer's Showcase here.

|Swimmer, 2006 -- Rita Bernstein|
Gallery 339 in Philadelphia will be displaying an exhibition of work by Rita Bernstein entitled Ghost of Summer. Opening November 12th with a reception running from 6-8pm, the show will feature recent works produced in Bernstein's beautiful signature technique of liquid silver emulsion hand applied to Japanese Gampi paper.
