    Gespaa, Green Marinée, Minema Plus, Plain Vanilla, Ocadia, RDC, Rin, and Wuhan.

    I'm pleased to see my theme is in MacManx's list (though personally, I like my Gentle Calm theme more) but I have to say Rin is probably my pick of the tournament.

    Good work by everyone involved and great news for anyone using WP!

    Gespaa-2 (which I've been using since day one of its release, thanks Phu_Ly/ifelse), Blix, Rin, Notebook (for its beautiful, original simplicity), and most definitely Plain Vanilla (in no particular order). Excellent work by a very talented group of people. I am very envious. :)

    (was mx4 in the contest?)

    Dixie Belle to me is the best that I have seen, Ocadia is clean and nice but something bothers me about the graphic running thru the sidebar from the first time I saw it. It is almost like a border that would run thru words. Fading Flowers, nice color scheme.

    I love it too, but in case you didn't notice Green Marinée unfortanately has a flaw (at least in Camino/Firefox) in the nested category list (the background image is vertical aligned middle for the parent category, putting it in the middle of the child list).

    In no particular order - Rin, Blix, Minima Plus, Gespaa and Connections. I based my opinion on the flexibility of the code (well commented and easily modified) as well as overall chutzpah. I've used the first four themes myself with various changes on a few sites and found the experience enjoyable and almost frustration free - which is exactly what I look for in a theme.

    That being said Holy Moley that's a lot of themes from a hell of a community. Thanks to all who have added to the richness of the WordPress experience - diversity is the key to life in any community, you've made us all proud to be part of this one.

    Cheers!

    Hmm. Mainly I looked for themes that I fit what I want in a page layout, and had background pics I could change. Got 29 of them in my jump drive. Probably wont be able to try them out until next weekend, but maybe have time for some on Tuesday night.

    Besides my own ;) I really like: Dixie Belle, Reflections, Jakarta, Journalized Sand and Simple Green. Gosh, and so many others too. But those are my top faves. There are some really nice themes in this competition...it's an honor to be among them.

    with the risk of being redundant, there are just too many good themes out there right now. I really like Landzilla and equiX right now. I'm surprised that no one mentioned them yet.

    Really? I had noticed that but thought it may have been intentional. I've been using IE as of late so I don't notice these things. (I know I know)

    But I still love that theme. It's just the "cleanness" that attracts me I guess.

    I like equiX a lot as a matter of fact. It's default on me blog right now matey! Arrrr! (sorry just saw the new pirate theme)

    In alpha order....
    Amsterdam Nights
    Neptune
    Neuron
    Rampart
    China Red

    Although, I proly won't use any of them for my blog (they don't quite fit the theme).
    For those that did, here's my pick:
    Chuck A Wobbly
    Cub Reporter
    Letterhead
    Notebook
    Rin

    Gads, there were a ton of stuff to go through. I had a hard time picking it down to just five. I my deepest sympathies to the judges....

    Wow, I'm really tickled people liked my Dixie Belle theme so much. You all just made my day :)

    Of the themes I've checked out so far, by far my favorite is Almost Spring. As its designer remarks, it's simple and clean and orange and green - all good things in my book!

    There are many themes that are great looking, but here's my favorites:

    1 and 2 columns:
    Pool, Green Marinée, and Mallow

    Spirit
