    Congrats ChadH and thanks Iron Maiden for the vote!

    I was considering this cover but since black is the absence of color, technically it doesn't count. Right?

    That's not true, here.

    That would only be the case in Physics (i.e. Outter Space). Artistically, White is the absence of color. Black is the presence of all of them.

    Yeah, it's no biggy. I liked the artwork on the cover I chose, that's good enough for me.

    I hope my comments aren't taken badly. Sometimes I'm too honest for my own good.

    Not at all. Your comments are generally overwhelmingly positive so when any criticism is expressed, it's a sentiment that has merit. This thread is a huge source of good will and camaraderie. You fit in well and I am glad you post and take part.

    I’m not offended. I’ve been known to speak my mind on occasion.

    Well, given that I'm happy whenever I get any votes…

    One thing I've noted is that a lot of times the winning cover is slightly different than the other ones in some way, by interpreting the theme in a novel way. But it's seldom that bringing it up to 11 works.
