28th May 2009, 11:26 PM

The voting has finished and now it is time for the results!
I was pleased to run this challenge and it has been well supported by the membership in terms of entries (8) and those voting (22). However not one to be complacent, I hope the winner is able to attract even more entries than I did as the competition is a great means of showing what can be achieved through the lens. My thanks to all those who took part.

In third place:
dbutch (Dave) - Love strawberries

Thank you to everybody, I am pleasantly surprised.

Well done to all entrants, I found it quite difficult to vote as all entries had a different take on the theme with some good interpretations.
This was my first attempt and since entering I have developed the idea, adding some bubbles and changing the point of focus slightly, so thank you to Barr1e for the idea, it has given me several hours of enjoyment.

I think Barrie has done an excellent job running the challenge and keeping it in the forefront of people's minds, quite an act to follow.
I am going away for the weekend so I will give the theme some thought and will upload the next challenge on Sunday evening, if that is OK with everybody.

Thanks again Barr1e...... A1 job *chr

Gosh, you were so close. It was nerve racking here in ann1ebarr1e HQ's. When each new vote came in it was like watching a GP - who was going to take the lead after the pit stop.

All entrants did well, and I get the impression many more will take part in the 18th challenge starting next week.

Again, thanks to all.

Regards. Barr1e
