    Although being a first time participant myself...I think there are many very good entries....

    From a personal perspective; Why did I enter this competition?...
    Well compared to some other Internet sites, the critisisme is constructive and friendly...It is not that daunting for newbies like myself....Hope it stays like that...

    I think generic themes that allow more opportunities for entrants to take photos works. Choosing hard themes such as "noise" just didn't get the same numbers :suicide: . Take note this months winner.

    Right about a hard choice......some excellent shots this month. I swing between well composed shots with that extra interest, to the simple & straight to the point "texture" shot :rolleyes: . I always give extra point to those who take shots in the month of comp though ;)

    I'm a first time entrant myself and I have to agree with DJW, the theme was a big factor for me. I've looked in a lot of the last few months' comps and struggled a bit (guess I'm just not imaginative enough!).

    It's going to be ahrd deciding.

    Just a reminder that the closing date is this Friday coming. I am off work that day so will be closing the competition for entries around about the mid-day point.

    Make sure you don't miss the deadline!

    That's a shame as your entries quite often make me laugh (especially the ones of your mates larking around) :clap:

    Get snapping GJ!

    There are so many good entries this month - will be really interesting to see who wins.

    I'm off to Mallorca for 7 nights on Saturday and will have to find an internet cafe to allow me to vote and then also to see what the new topic is.......whoever wins - please can they choose "beach" or something Mallorca-friendly please? ;)
