Irony or not, its still a hard choice even with three votes.

Alfbranch, if you want to load up you entry so that we can see it without going out on that link, its fine by the rules I reckon. Or just leave it as it is, its a valid entry....

Congrats to DekHog it really is a superb portrait. Well done Janet as well.

Thanks to all those who voted for my entry. Could not find anyone else who would let me take their picture hence the selfie

Very nice to see such a big list of good entries.
