    Trailer, Mandlan and Shotokan, I really liked those, but my vote goes to domino1999! For me it was just like at first sight :) It made me giggle and I appreciated the creative effort in it. A bit outside the box thinking!

    There are loads of cracking entries this month, it's been a real tough job to decide
    which to vote for. In the end I shortlisted those shots which, for me, nailed the theme "from above", without any prompt needed from the title.

    Those are the shots from Paranormalist, shotokan101, caddie, robfjonesuk, simonblue, GaseousClay and Mart73.

    I should give a special mention to Tinywerz, den9112 and Hiker, fab shots in their own right, but not quite hitting the theme for me.

    This month my vote goes to Paranormalist. I loved it the very first time I saw it, I love the abstract nature of it and I'd hang it on my wall any day :thumbsup:

    Great set of entries this month - I liked all the shots - some hit the theme for me and some didn't but still good shots :)

    As soon as I saw domino1999's entry I suspected it might be the one for me as it made me laugh out loud - very creative idea that really captured the theme in a fun and original way and very well captured technically too.

    So despite stiff competition from the cracking entry from den9112 that's a real tribute to his concept, planning and patience to capture what he envisioned - Darren just pips it and gets my vote this month but a very very close call indeed :)

    Other notable entries that hit the theme for me this month were Paranormalist, Nemesisagogo, simonblue, GaseousClay and of course hiker's excellent shot :)

    Jim

    EDIT: - and of course thanks for all the great comments on the entry thread - very much appreciated and somewhat surprising TBH :blush:

    ...and of course thanks to all who've voted for or mentioned me here as well :thumbsup:

    Another vote for domino1999 here :thumbsup: A very creative shot and one that made me laugh too (so much so that most of the eggs in my rack now have googly eyes on them!)

    Special mentions to Paranormalist, hiker and shotokan101 for shots that really grabbed my attention too. All the entries were excellent as always.

    I went for Hiker's shot, which is way more impressive when not viewing as a thumbnail; a lovely powerful shot. It was a very close run thing, for me with, with Shotokan101's image, which not only has a very different mood to it, but looks good as the thumbnail too.

    Shows the importance of opening all of the images before making any decision, I guess.

    I have tried to PM zone with this, but can't get it to send. Please would a moderator pass this on, or address the issue, and delete this post please. Sorry to post here, but it seemed my only option.

    Thanks


    Hi Zone

    I think I have discovered a problem with the voting system. I made my vote and then opted to post a comment as to how I had made my decision, as I usually do. However, as I went to submit my posting I was requested by the system to login. Slightly confusing; how had I been able to vote if I wasn’t logged in?
    Anyhow, I logged in, completed my posting and have just gone back to see what the system has made of my vote. It telling me “You have already voted on this poll”, but my ID is not showing against any entry, obviously. I am pretty sure the system didn’t use to let you vote before you had logged in? I am a bit concerned that others may have thought they have voted without realising they are not logged in.

    I'm glad you posted this as I've been in touch with Zone today via PM as this behaviour seems to be the cause of the number of votes showing in the poll for some entries - e.g. Hiker and myself - not tallying with the list of expanded voters - this is apparently what happens when non logged in users vote - they are seen as "guests" and unfortunately such votes are excluded from the count when Zone does his tallying up :(

    Until you posted I wasn't aware that it would actually prevent users such as yourself who accidentaly voted in this "guest" fashion from voting "properly" when logged in...

    I noticed this behaviour as well and was going to ask about it, but it seems it's all in hand, thanks Jim.

    I'm surprised my "just for fun" egg shot has received as many votes as it has, so thanks to everyone who's voted for it :thumbsup: (so far, it's not too late :D).

    Another cracking month of shots. I am logged in and making sure my vote counts this month lol.

    Honourable mentions go to... domino1999, Andy C 47, hiker, Nemesisagogo and Jim for a fantastic entry which can be viewed over and over.

    This month though my vote goes to den9112 which is time well spent I believe. It's a fantastic shot :)

    Oops, logged on to vote and I can see the poll is closed.

    As it happens, my vote would've been for Shotokan (domino1999 and hiker were the others on my shortlist), so I don't think my lateness affected the outcome.
