September 19 Photo Challenge Results: Landscape

1st place--------Stoates-----------Droma Dawn-----------------16 votes https://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=51352 https://e-group.uk.net/gallery/showp...p/photo/104333

2nd place-------Shenstone--------Morocco----------------------12 votes

3rd place--------IainmacD---------Loch Beinn a' Mheadhoin----9 votes

4th place--------AMc---------------Upton Marsh------------------8 votes

5th place--------Otto--------------Wensleydale-------------------6 votes

Congratulation to Stoates with his stunning landscape, Droma Dawn. Also congrats to Shenstone with his colourful and serene Morocco, IainmacD with the spiritual Loch Beinn a' Mheadhoin, AMc with his Upton Marsh, and Otto with the Wensleydale scene. I have placed the 4th and 5th places as they were also exceptional photographs. So well done all in these placements.

Runners up include Chris with 4 votes, Barr1e, Phill D, Smartiepants, and thecedars with 3 votes, Keith369 and Jim Ford with 2 votes each, Wornish, blu-by-u, wreckdiver, OwenMc, Greyoldman, Shaw and Travellingchick, all of who survived with 1 vote each.....

MJ224, Griffig, OM User, Blende8, Walti, Jonesey, 090657, TonyfromAlnwick, Alfbranch, and AJW came in with excellent photos, alas the votes had run out by the time we were considered...…...

This has proved to be the best challenge so far (certainly in my time here) challenge, with 30 entries. Voting went well, with 28 individual voters, placing 78 votes in all.

Again, Congratulations to Stoates....

Summary might follow in the next few days, but feel free to comment on all or any of the entries

Re: September 2019 Challenge: Landscape

Whoops!

I forgot to vote so just did it, as the last post I saw was "last day to vote" I don't think it makes any difference to the results though.

Congratulations to all on this I think this may have been the highest standard so far for one of the competitions! ?

I was a little upset not to even get one vote for my "standard Tobermoray" photo though

Congratulations to all again!

Re: September 2019 Challenge: Landscape

My congratulations on an excellent winning picture.

It's nice that something that is "real" won as mine is "photoshopped". There had been a sandstorm overnight and the sky was almost yellow ... none of that blue sky was actually there

Regards
Andy

Congrats to the winners and thanks to everybody (whether point-scorers or not ) for sharing some lovely work.

And thanks to Mark as always for doing the admin - quite a task with this many entries and votes.

Forgot to say a big thanks to Mark for organising these every month. We are not an easy bunch to control.

Congratulations to the winners.

(It would be handy if in the list of winners, links to the winning images could be put, so we can quickly review them without having to hunt through all the pages.)

Done, I can link the page, but you still have to scroll to the photo, unless you can suggest another way to it (might try the Flickr link if it has one)

Well done Steve, a well deserved win. Thanks once again to Mark for the time effort you put in to organise this and encourage our participation. Very good standard of entries this time.

Re: September 2019 Challenge: Landscape

Very pleased to have come out on top this month. Thanks to all who voted and to all the entrants for a great competition. And again, thanks (it's starting to sound like the Oscars!) to Mark for his time in running these monthly challenges.

Andy (Shenstone), the picture was taken pretty much as you see it. It was from a trip out with fellow member IainMacD - just one of those special mornings in a pretty stunning location (one of our favourites) that make it worthwhile getting out of bed at crazy-o-clock. I would not have guessed you had swapped the sky in your entry; very realistic and a great result.

Congratulations Stoates, great image.


Thanks to those who voted for me, I was really lucky to be in the right place at the right time - went to speak to a man about a shed, not take any pictures!


Thanks to MJ224 for organising the competition too
