I declared a 2-way tie

The announcement:


Dear Stereophile Readers,

Now that the May issue is out, the Jane Monheit Photo Caption Contest from my "The Fifth Element" column in the April issue has concluded.

I received more than 30 entries.

Entries that violated the spirit of the rule that the caption be G-rated by indulging in sexual innuendo were disqualified.

There were some good entries, but I thought that two were a cut above, so, I declare a tie, and both entrants will receive the "33 1/3" CD, courtesy of Hyena Records, http://www.hyenarecords.com

Here are my selections for the winning entries:

"This next song is dedicated to the people seated on the ceiling."

I liked this one because it keys off the photo's unusual pose, and is more clever than silly.

And:

"He walked to a window and stood looking up at the sky. His head thrown back, he felt the pull of his throat muscles and he wondered whether the peculiar solemnity of looking at the sky comes not from what one contemplates, but from that uplift of one's head."

-Ayn Rand, "The Fountainhead"

I liked this one because it is literary, and as does the other, directly relates to what makes the photo striking.

Winning entrants, please email me your delivery addresses.

Thanks again to all who entered.
