This was a most wonderful and difficult challenge to judge! Our membership submitted some of the most gorgeous production photos we have ever seen. Our four judges have sent us their choices and here’s the result!
   
    Congratulations for first place goes to Loveall1229. The production photo chosen by 3 out of the four judges is the Best Production Photo winner.
Baby, it's cold outside... by Loveall1229

Judge’s comments include, “I love the mood of this photo, and I feel it effectively demonstrates the set, lighting, and a little bit of the costumes. I also feel it is one of the most pretty and compelling photos. (to pull from the challenge description). The design of the whole set is in perfect harmony. The purple colors are beautiful and give a mood to the play. I think I've fainted.   You did a wonderful use of the space giving a realistic sense of perspective.   Excellent work.  Congratulations! It clearly shows that the design team was together in their interpretation. The world is very narrative and descriptive. Everything in this composition works together as a unified whole.”

Second place has the invariable TIE. The winners for second place are paulfeb282  paulfeb282.deviantart.com/  and  jdartfan jdartfan.deviantart.com/

This is a gorgeous photo! I love the set display, the actors' poses, and the costumes look fab!  The black and white makes for a really interesting photo, but it just looks so fun, I would love to see it in colour!  This is a wonderful photo that really shows how fun this show must have been. It looks wonderful in black and white!  However, it's difficult to comment on the lighting design since we don't have all the (color) information. As a production picture though, it certainly communicates the spirt of the piece! This photo is spectacular; it shows a pretty magical moment of the dreams. Very beautiful! Congratulations!  This photo effectively demonstrates the set, costumes, and some special effects. It is probably the most pretty and compelling of all entries for me. It would probably be my favorite if it were in colour, so I could better see everything, since colour is so important to many show elements.
Production Photo Entry by jdartfan
I feel this photo MOST effectively (of all entries) demonstrates many technical elements of the show. You can clearly see the set, lighting, costumes, and props. I feel while it may not be as pretty as other entries, it is definitely compelling, and in my opinion most closely followed the challenge instructions.
This is a great photo displaying many technical elements for this show!  And I'm SO glad you got a good shot of your goose!  I'm always sad when I get photos back from a show only to find that one piece I was so proud of doesn't have any good photos!  The portrait looks very nice, too.  I laughed when reading about your description of items used for various props.  Theatre always forces you to be creative and push boundaries in how to create things!  You had a great choice of colors for the props and paintings. Everything is harmoniously combined and resembles an oil canvas of the 19th century. Congratulations!

Out of all of the entries into this challenge, our judges also mention with great favor the work of the following. It is really worthwhile to read the comments from our judges and everyone who has visited their Pages!

I wish to thank everyone who participated in our Best Production Photo challenge. It was very successful, with many of our members coming out to make comments on each other’s works who may not have normally done so.  Everyone was so encouraging and helpful! And finally, the judges deserve a round of applause, because being a judge is difficult, and writing a meaningful critique is even more difficult. I am proud of our membership for taking the time and the heart to make this challenge so successful. You :icontheatreartists: are a great bunch of creative artists!

I didn't know how to add the submission info with my Production Photo Challenge deviation, so I'm gonna put it here, if that's ok. 
First of all, thank you so much for bringing my attention to this challenge, I would have missed out on seeing all these other beautiful theatre submissions otherwise.
A.  What is the title of the play? Sweeney Todd
B.  What was your role in the production? (Milliner, First-Hand, Scenic Artist,  Stitcher, Make-up artist, Costume Designer, Master Electrician, Lighting Designer, etc…) Assistant Stage Manager/ Stitcher/ Wardrobe Head/ Associate Lighting Designer/ Production Photographer (It's a small repertory theatre, I had to do a little of everything)
C.  How long did you have to design, plan and do drawings of it before fabrication of the work commenced? We rehearsed for 6 weeks, but we only had a week in the space, and only 3 days to complete the lighting design.
D.  How long did you have to build it before opening night? 1 day to set up, 3 days to build the light cues.
E.  What was special about this production for you as a creative artist? This production of Sweeney Todd was different from any I've ever seen. We not only took away the entire element of time period, we cut the cast down to the 9 leads who sang all the ensemble parts, and we performed on a turntable set that was built to look like the sewers of London. 
F.  What odd, terrible, awful, or nasty challenges did you have to overcome to make this production as good as it was? We were working in a theatre space that's built for movies rather than live theatre so we were working on limited circuts with limited lighting rigs which is how we ended up with the red "eyes" you see in this picture silhouetting Sweeney.
