Wowza Shirley - from what you thought was going to be just a few entrants, to yet again a totally worthy number of super images.

Gonna be a tough one to pick my three out of this little lot. Great images folks, whoevers they are.

Absolutely, images flooded in over the last few days, very happy with the number of images and the innovative interpretation of the theme. I am looking forward to getting votes, although I have to agree its a very tough choice.

Re: The Start - TIME TO VOTE

I see from the EXIF that the one of Weymouth harbour at dawn is from a Panasonic...

btw the rules state 'from an Olympus E-series camera' and perhaps should be amended to include MFT??

Hi Keith,
Yes this was noticed and discussed. I was told that on previous challenges this had been accepted because an olympus lens was used and on that basis I accepted it. I do agree that maybe we need to amend the rules in future.
Thank you
Shirley
