17th Challenge: Fruit Challenge Result

Hi

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



In second place:
snaarman (Pete) - Alien Life form



The winner is:
shirley (Shirley) - Ice and a slice



Many congratulations Shirley -
it's over to you for the next challenge.


Barr1e

Re: Fruit Challenge Result

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

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
