I'm going to go for Chief Wiggum, I think the colours are striking and the lone star against the sky is a great image. A lot of good entries!

Ah Crap! I forgot about this and didn't bump it.

Thanks for all the entries - certainly better than the first round - and a much higher quality.

In terms of Larry of Arabia's Q - I tot up the totals for first nominations for the outright winner,(my method is to tally up votes on a bit of paper rather than any fance Excel usage) then give any 2nd or 3rd places a bonus point each. If enough people vote I reckon that this would mean that a well liked second place nomination could end up with more points in a round than the first place.

Anyway voting closed last night and as far as I can make out they come out like this....

Sharkboy...1 vote (+1 bonus point)
Yours Truly... 4 votes (0 BP)
Sanchia... (1 BP)
Johnson... 1 vote (1BP)
HobbitonLass... (1 BP)
Mojo ...1 vote (0 BP)

Now there is the matter of the bonus round with 10 pts on offer for the song with the most awards according to Wikipedia. if anybody wants to claim this then post your song and the amount of awards and I'll factor it in to the totals ASAP.

Oh my oh my. People people people. I thought it was an open and shut case. I implore you all to go back into page 1 and take another goosey at Mojo's picture. It's about as good as it's ever gonna get. I can only surmise that it was so good, you all discarded it as being tooooo good and voted elsewhere.
Having said that, Sanchia is clearly runner up with his Country Road. No offence Chief Wiggum, it's a nice shot and all, and I know you must have countless others as good as the one Mojo took, but for this competition I don't believe the thread can be taken seriously if y'all don't award the round's pts to Mojo. It's only a picture I know; but if you're gonna play, you may as well play properly. Seriously. It ticks every box, and then has the best music title connection to boot.
Right (stepping off soapbox), I've said my piece. Oh, and Sharkboy was 3rd!! All 3 were great.....

I think I got two votes! I don't fully understand the voting points system, why did everybody get a bonus point apart from me?

Wow Gazpop, you really like that photo, thanks for the kind words!

bugger, you're right Mojo - adding up skills failed hard there

the Bonus points are for 2nd and third nominations - so if, like my photo, people only voted for your photo to win no bonus points are awarded.. it's not a perfect system, but otherwise it means spreadsheets and all that Jazz.

I thought that we were only voting for our favourites. I just quoted a second place as it was close and the verbal recommendation should be reward enough.

I'm not sure of the big bonus points thing. Ten points for picking a song is worth more than most of the votes put together.

I didn't even name a second choice, wasn't aware that we were supposed to. It's all very confundling!
