    Customary Thank You to everyone who has entered and for the first time, this month the winner will receive a 10x8 reproduction of their winning entry coutesy of Fotoview.com

    You're right Steve - really difficult to choose a winner this month! :rolleyes: The standard is just sooo high. :thumbsup:

    In the end I went for the comedy of Geordie Jester's entry. It makes me smile everytime I see especially how he captured the expression on the face of the guy about to be hit. Is technically an excellent shot too, a worthy winner in my view.

    Most months I wish that could vote for 3 entries not 1. However this month I'd have liked to have voted for at least 10! If I could I'd have voted for tyefi, SeaneyC, DJW, Seany, Stevegreen (the closest to a "Hank Marvin" entry!), Andrewdolpin, BigB@dJ@y, Reedly, Roberac, minimad and jamieD as well. :D

    Hard choice indeed. For me it was between Reedly and Aliflack and myself (obviously).

    I really like both of those shots and i'm still deciding which one to vote for :confused:

    The scope for this months theme made it the best yet. Tough choice, i went for icosthowmuch's in the end, it's the kind off shot i like. Feel pretty much the same as old electro about who to vote for:)

    Going to be tough to match the standard of this months comp again

    aliflack gets my vote, a great spot and well executed. Although the front edge of the spacebar is a bit overblown it still looks fine. (sorry about nitpicking) I just really love the variation across the keyboard.

    I was considering voting for Reedly as well, its a surreal green colour and excellent deffinition in the shadows, but there is something about duckweed and things like it that creep me out. :rolleyes: I think i like to be able to see into the water, incase something lurks down there.

    Some great entries here, this was my first AVForums entry and the level of competition is much higher than i anticipated, good show.

    4 contenders for me - anyone who used silhouettes was discounted straight off, any entries where the shadow was not the focal point was then knocked off the list...

    in reverse order:

    Reedly - great idea, but for me the duckweed was slightly too full of debris and the shadow wasn't dark/crisp enough.

    Mark B - this really attracted my attention as a thumbnail, but when enlarged it didn't have enough detail to hold my attention.

    Geordie Jester - brilliant capture of a (presumably?) spur of the moment event. Lost out because I was looking to see either the source of the light or the source of the shadow.

    The one that got my vote:
    Andrewdolphin - brilliantly staged I thought, good colours etc. Only comment would be to try altering the composition so that the shadow lies on a diagonal to lead your eye towards the glass.

    Right I'm back from the pub and I've mulled it over and itcosthowmuch gets my vote narrowly beating Reedly due to his entry having been taken specifically for this months comp, love the simplicity of it, well done mate :)

    Where as with your picture Steve that info appears to be lost (I'm viewing with Irfanview) as when you alter/edit a picture some or all of this info can get lost unless you "save as" I think you may have simply saved the image as a new one, as I hope you edited a copy of the original just in case you :censored: up ;)

    I think that for future competitions one thing needs to be clearly defined. Do photos need to be taken during the competition period? Currently there is no rule on this so entries from any date have been accepted, but i sense some confusion out there.

    What about doing what the various dpreview forums do. have one eligible gallery for photos taken for the competition and an exhibition gallery for any relevant photo from any time. the prize should probably go to the eligible gallery winner.

    Bah, still no votes for me.
