Re: Photo Challenge 91 - December Skies

Hi all - I thought I'd leave this to run a little longer since the entry roll call was looking a bit thin. Perhaps we need to do something to get the number of entries up since it's definitely getting progressively lower I think as time goes by. Maybe we should try to add something as a reward - maybe the chance to get a short portfolio featured in the site landing page for the following month? I'll PM Ian and see what he thinks.

However - to this month. Firstly, I'd like to thank all those that entered for some great shots. Despite the small number of entries, it wasn't easy picking a winner But, here goes...

Since the entry list was so short, I won't do a 3rd, 2nd and winner, but commend each of the entries first and then pick one.

This is a wonderful shot with great composition and mood. However, the burn-out around the sun is pretty severe and could really do with toning down. I'm sure a bit of PP would do the trick. Nonetheless, a super shot.

Beautiful colours and mood in this image. It really does capture the theme of the comp perfectly.

Similar to Wornish's shot in many ways and just as satisfying to look at. I think Walti's decision to minimise the ground to the benefit of sky has really worked and given us a great example of how winter sunsets can be so dramatic.

Super shot. The beam of light above the clouds has lots of visual impact and has been very well captured

A subtle and beautiful capture of a star studded sky with just the right amount of foreground interest to give it perspective. Super - I love it.

So .... The winner...

It has to be Jon's Wilshire Starscape. Fantastic technical image and captivating artistically.

So - over to you Jon for the next challenge!
