2nd E Group Photo Challenge-The Winner-

Well the lines have now been closed and the votes have been counted and verified by an independent adjudicator (more commonly known as long suffering ’er indoors)

Firstly a big thank you to all those who supported this competition, both entrants and voters, simply without you there would be no competition, it is my hope and belief that interest will grow in this feature the longer the competition runs.

Personally I think all entries were winners, the biggest winner being the forum for having such talented individuals willing to ‘give it a go’.

So without further ado,

In reverse order ,

A big hand for KEITHBD in 3rd place for his very colourful ‘Sand Spades’ voting 8 points

2nd Place is awarded to Susan for her amazing entry ’Smoke’ voting 14 Points

Which leaves

1st Place and winner of the 2nd E Group Photo Challenge Derek C for voting a massive 22 points with his entry ’Stones’

Congratulations to Derek C, can we expect a speech?

Well I’ve enjoyed my time as winner and I hope you have enjoyed having me, but all good things must come to an end, over to you Derek C the floor is yours.

The Winning Entry 'Stones' by Derek C


2nd Place 'Smoke' by Susan


3rd Place by KEITHBD 'Sand Spades'

Talking Re: 2nd E Group Photo Challenge-The Winner-

Thank you I must say delighted to win!!
I took the photo on a walk around Dalby Forest on the North Yorkshire Moors. It was getting late in the afternoon the light was still good and these moss covered stones really stood out.

All the entries were very good so a BIG Thank You to all that voted.

I will set the 3rd E-group challenge this evening. Just got to decide on the theme, got a couple in mind.

Cheers all
Derek

Great stuff Derek... looking forward to this already...

I felt like a right twit during the last challenge... I'd been looking through some of my shots that could meet the category for 'Colour' - and found one or two that I was working on improving and looking to enter. It was only on the last day of the challenge that I remembered that the shots needed to have been taken during the 2 weeks of the challenge, and shouldn't be existing shots in ones library.

So... why did I feel like a twit... because I set up the rules we use - in the 1st challenge.... d'oh

Great stuff. Well done to all - especially Derek. I also chose yours as No 1 and also picked at least one if not both of the others (short-term memory loss again - pardon?) .

Lovely damp shot. I could almost smell it!
