Re: 10th E-group challenge. RESUULTS HERE!

Gosh - a surprise and an honour. Thank you all.

My own favourite was AndyM's image of church candles - a superb shot IMO and very difficult to do, with the challenge of glass there as well.

Ermmm now for the downside! I will have a think about the next challenge and pm you for advice, Pete.

As we have the E30 comp on the 'beauty of winter' I shall think of something else....

Re: 10th E-group challenge. RESUULTS HERE!

Nice one Makonde, super shot.

I have to say that I felt this was one of the best challenges we have had as yet on e-group with some fantastic images entered. I'd also like to extend my personal thanks to Pete for managing this challenge so well. Thanks Pete....

Now.... on with the next one eh! Great stuff all.

EDIT: PS - It would be great if we can manage to squeeze another two challenges into 2008 - making a total of 12 in all.

A fantastic collection of entries, but there could unfortunately only be one winner - and a well deserved one it is too

Well done to all who entered
