Right-ee-ho me hearties - time for November's judging. . .
To say it was tricky to reach a decision is something of an understatement. There were so many really great and imaginative entries it has cost me a fair deal of soul-searching to arrive at a conclusion. Indeed to list all those images with a strong claim would include most, so I'll simply say that - in no particular order - would be images from Done-runde.cams; Geren, Petrochemist; Craig, MJB; Andrew Flannigan, Catriona; PI Photography, Fishboy and EightbitTony.
However I have put the final three here in reverse order:
At number 3: is the bright and breezy entry from Craig20264:
2nd is Catriona's deliciously arranged confection - Kilocalorific
But at number one is the entry from MJB which had all sorts of strongly suggested energies from the power of
the Atkinson diesel to the product on offer - of which I have supped-a-plenty in my time: Magnet.
Well done Martin - a truly magnetic attraction:
Now Martin, it's up to you to choose the theme for December, and remains only for me to thank every forumite who took part.
Congratulations to MJB - and thank you for the mention! Glad I didn't have to judge as there were some really great entries this time. Looking forward to the new theme!
Congrats to Martin, Cat and Craig and, thanks Martin, for the inclusion
Congratulations to the winners, mentioned, and all the entrants.I am looking forward to the next theme
Congrats to all the winners
Wow! I'm genuinely shocked to have won, given the usual high standard of entry. I certainly didn't expect that photo to be the winner. I guess it demonstrates how a connection with the viewer is as important as technical details in photography. Hopefully I can come up with a suitable theme that will both challenge and inspire.
Well done Martin! Thank you Mike for your kind words and the fun theme!
Best of luck choosing the next theme, Martin. Never easy! Looking forward to seeing what's going to keep me busy and cheerful during December.
Well done everybody! A worthy winner indeed, and I look forward to December's theme - I'm sure it'll be a good one.
Well done all.
Congrats indeed Martin. And a big thank you to Mike for the judging, but most of all for putting me in the top 3 .
well done to all
