And this beautiful photograph didn't win, why? Or at least made it to being one of the months for the calendar? It would have been perfect for January no doubt.

Deviantart and Sony...you've disappointed me. -_-

I guess you're right that Sony is not to blame but DA. >_>

With this contest and a few others that took place in the last few months, I'm starting to think if it's even worth entering on this site anymore...
