There are more imaginitive images here than any previous challenge. I commend all the authors for their vision. Some of the images are totally 'outside the box'.
This will be difficult...................:eek:

I agree with Dave here, what an outstanding set of images - the thought that has gone into these is astonishing. Brilliant effort, everyone.

Now... how on earth do I decide on the voting?

Great photographs and it will be difficult voting. However, am I right in thinking that, judging by the several interpretations of the theme Self Portrait, some of the members have been confused (like me :confused:) by the words in Rule 2 "visibly anonymous"?

As I didn't enter, I didn't see this. Should this influence our voting then as it would narrow things down rather?
I know that in camera club competitions judges are often advised to consider rejection of images that don't comply with the rules.
However, I would be inclined to ignore Rule 2 but it is all down to the promoter - over to you Don! :eek:

I didn't enter either, Dave, as I was still planning my fantastic and unbeatable submission..........but ran out of time;).

I would never have thought of half the ideas that were forthcoming from those that actually entered the comp! :(

Maybe we should make a small change to rule 2 for this month to read "risibly anonymous".

Of course, it would then become permanent as this month's winner would cut & paste the rules when setting next month's challenge.....

last minute voters get them in now.
there are some definite trends in the voting but it ain't over till it's over, an upset is still possible
