an entry to this competition is never late, nor is it early, it arrives precisely when it means to..



unless it's after 5 pm on Thursday, in which case... yes, yes it is late.

Based on fit to the brief (my interpretation that is) and appeal of the image.


Some blades of grass - really like the way the sun clips the highlights, very atmospheric.
Doing time - I like the juxtopisition of "doing time" with the fresh start theme.
Watch - very apt, a new job.

A good round for a thread that's been rebooted a few times, hope the next one is as good!

ok, just a couple more days to go before voting closes, so it would be great to see a few more forumites sticking their opinions in, so that we don't get drunken "he woz robbed!!!11" posts after the fact (I'm looking at you Gazpop)

ok so I've counted up the votes and as far as I can tell the results are as follows...

1st - Some Blades of Grass In The Sun - Jon5000 -6
2nd - 13 Seconds -Sanchia -5
3rd -The first thing i see in a new day- By Gingerdaniel -4
4th -Doing Time - HobbitonLass -3
5th =Hasedera Temple complex, Kamakura. - Hozay -2
=Watch - Chief wiggum -2
=road to spring - LastMemories -2
=Tomorrow can wait. by Mojo -2
=Dino Showdown - King of Kafiristan -2
10th = Spring - fresh start By PocketRocket

If somebody could check the maths (it's been a long day and, lets face it, it wouldn't be the first time I've miscounted) and confirm that this is the case

In the mean time if we could get a new theme from Jon5000, I'll set up the thread for next month. if you could keep it short and vague so we can get lots of varied entries from forumites that would be grand (so less of "i want pictures of a man holding a pint" more "i want pictures based on the theme of relaxation").

Thanks again for all your entries, as far as I can tell everybody came away with a point towards the overall years comp, and it was really close between Sanchia and jon5000 (I'll split the total value of 5th-9th between all those that got 2 points)


I will also note that, whilst it's not against the rules to vote for your own entry, it's not quite cricket in my eyes

I was torn over voting for DINO SHOWDOWN. I didn't vote for it because I wanted to win, I voted for it because I believed it was the third best photo (that is why I listed it third), and to not vote for it simply because of a concern for appearances would, I decided, be dishonest. Would someone else really want my vote if they knew they were not really my third favorite of all entries? I assure you that I wouldn't have voted for my own photo if I'd seen three others I liked more.

Anyway, proud to have tied for third place, and I look forward to learning of our new theme from Jon5000.

PS: congrats to everyone who participated!

I don't have a problem with it, really (I should have put a smiley after it) but not wanting to sound too british, I view competitions like this, where there is only personal pride at stake, as being like village cricket; you want to win, but you'd rather that everybody has a good time doing it on both sides, you clap the opposing batsmen as they come in, you acknowledge the bowling of the opposite team.

it's not like it's stopped anyone doing it in the past, and I don't discount the votes. I think the only time I would ask for a judgement call would be if the "self-voting" made the difference between somebody winning the round

To be honest I'd say yours was definitely more the photographer's photo. Excellent composition!

Really the plaudits for my win should go to the blade of grass

I've decided that, seeing as I can't bring myself to cast votes that do not reflect my true opinions, I will in future abstain from the ballot when it comes to these competitions. If I'm competing, I won't be voting.

Don't be like that about it, it's not like it's cheating, just a little unsporting, like sledging (to carry on the cricket analogy)

I'd also be more critical if you posted a pic, and didn't vote - expecting people to judge your picture without reciprocating the sentiment would be even more unsporting IMO.

and lets face it, the voting is all highly subjective so you must vote for what you think are the best 3 pictures.

Oh don't get me wrong, no hard feelings. I thought long and hard about it and couldn't quite wrap my head around your position and what it was you wanted from me, and I decided that the way for me to participate and still have fun was to stick to sharing my photos and leave the judging to others.
