Re: The Result - E-System Users 2009 End Of Year Challenge

Congratulations to the winners. Unfortunately I didn't get my a** around to vote. I know - I know! I will place my vote from now on.

A little tip for picture #2 : Try to soften the line crossing the sky where you've edited the photo. Ither than that : Fantastic photos!

Well done Graydon. What a lot of time and effort - no wonder you need to lay down! Once again, a very big thank you!

Re: The Result - E-System Users 2009 End Of Year Challenge

Thank you Graydon for all your work and for placing me amongst the illustrious! I thought I would just get a dishonorable unmention.

That pint (and perhaps a bit more) is still waiting for you if you are down this way at all.

Best wishes
Bob

Re: The Result - E-System Users 2009 End Of Year Challenge

Well done to everyone!

It was so difficult to choose, as has been said before.
I chose two of the winners, but tried to vary my votes with a non-landscape choice. The third is beautiful, but I had my eye on a couple of others for third place.

We're all winners to be in this company!

As is said on Bargain Hunt, there are no losers, only "runners up".
