We definately were not expecting a 3 Way tie.  Definately thought mine would be an outright winner lol.  ::)

We'll give it to midnight tomorrow night (9th March) and then close down the voting.  If it's still a tie we will get an independent adjudicator to pick the winner.

That was a hard choice, there are some fantastic photos there there are four that are in my mind exceptional. I found it really difficult to choose between them!

well done no.4

mine was no.5 Moonlit water (its the bridge in the middle of Newcastle)

5. Good experimentation and interesting elements. Saying that, I would snip the left just until the light is cropped, snip the bottom until the purple is away, then crop the right so the moon is in the middle. At that the moon is still very close to the top edge. Perhaps step back and tilt the camera up next time? Keep playing with the light effects, but they need more prominence - looks like leaked light here (maybe it was unintentional).

thanks for the feedback Craig, i took about 10 pics of that scene and probably had one just like you recommended but i went with my heart on it and chose the one with everything in, maybe less is more  ;D. The light on the left is st johns point lighthouse, i was hoping it would have given more of a circular beam, maybe i needed a longer exposure but limited to 60 secs on my camera. I couldn't have stepped back any further as I would have been on the road and a car might have hit me and that would have really messed up the long exposure  :D

does my picture show ok on other people computers? it looks ok to me on my home pc but at work it comes out a LOT darker (you can't even see the river), i did adjust the monitor brightness and contrast to no avail.


p.s. i voted for No.6. Stones in water, very haunting  :o

Next month it will be landscapes all the way !!  ;D

Entry 4 was mine:



It was taken from a carpark just outside Greyabbey, Co Down and the island on the horizon is Chapel Island.

Sorry about the quality of the link but it's all I can find on the net.  The collection of islands here look like they have excellent potential for an overnight bivvy and has now been added to my list of things to do this year.

Thanks to everybody that voted for my entry... I have a nice warm glow about me today  :)

I voted for Shoreline... I really liked that shot.  Hope this isn't like Big Brother and I get punished for discussing nominations  :D
