Thanks for that I've had a few communications saying the same and a couple more entries so far which will make the viewing and voting all the more fun

To those who haven't doen it yet ... please keep sending in your entries

Re: The 2010 End of Year “Open Challenge”

Come on folk ... just a few more days and whilst we've got some very good pictures yous could well be better / more interesting i.e. THE WINNER !

We're not quite up to the number from last year and I was so hoping to better it ... you wouldn't want me to be upset would you

Regards
Andy

Re: The 2010 End of Year “Open Challenge”

I've decided to be brave and enter this year, but it seems that I've lost the Exif somewhere along the way.

Due to a PC crash, I've no longer got the originals, but I downloaded the photos from my Flickr site, and the details are still on there. Hope that will be acceptable?

I don't think I've got a cat in hells chance against the others on here though!

Re: The 2010 End of Year “Open Challenge”

Just emailed my entries (it's more important to enter than to win!) after being without my broadband for over three weeks following my move to Dorset. I have to admit it's been lonely not being able to log on to the forum though having to unpack 155 boxes of "stuff" kept us busy.

It's nice to be back and to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy 2011.

Don't think so, no relatives in South Wales that I know of ... but there are a few family skeletons, so you never know!
