So "Autumn" and "Weather" didn't suit the country types, Tim?

I agree some fabulous shots there. I don't envy you making a decision Paul.

Nice to see new member Verdant (Julian) entering the competition. A great shot, too, with that all-impotant but elusive ingredient of visual humour. You can certainly see why that tree in the middle of a concrete jungle is so lush and green!

Another great selection of entries. I don't expect that judging will be very easy, although Paul is a pretty handy city snapper himself and I look forward to what he makes of these entries. No pressure, Paul!

Re: Discussion and Comments for Challenge 62 - City Life

It is interesting the way that opinions differ and small things can make a difference from one person to the next. I can see why Paul did not like the bollard on the 2nd place shot but I quite like the way it echoed the finger and it went some way to making the picture for me. There is never one answer, which is one of the reasons I love photography.
A great topic, great images well done Paul for choosing it. (note to self: Must try harder!)
