    I was torn between Tontohorse's landscape and Electrolyte's portrait but in the end chose the portrait shot.

    Excellent entries this month, I think it's gonna be close.

    I went for GarryF waxed rain, I liked the effect of the rain on the car roof with the street lighting, I also chose this as I prefer to see people thinking outside the box or trying something different instead. :thumbsup:

    Like to mention the entries from Paranormalist and Mike.P® also :smashin:

    The best photo this month, just like last month, hasn't made it on to the poll. I wish she would actually enter her shots!

    But of those eligible for entry my fave was Shane Wilson's. Made me laugh and is a super photo to boot.

    Another great month with loads of really good stuff getting entered.

    Eventually boiled down to two entries for me between ShaneWilson and iandrews but in the end ShaneWilson got my vote as it made me laugh and was also a very good interpretation of the theme - on more than one level (as was iandrews shot) - Nice one :smashin:

    Other entries this month that I particularly liked were - in no particular order - those from M-C-P-M, Paranormalist, tontoshorse, Mike.P®, electrolyte, markbingo and last but certainly not least Darthchaffinch - all great shots.

    I didn't think there was a bad entry this month TBH - well done to everyone who entered and good luck with the voting :thumbsup:

    Lots of entries and a really difficult choice for me. Lots of different interpretations of a tough subject.

    I really liked Paranormalist's shot, but for me it was just too processed, so I'm afraid lost my vote for that reason.

    In the end, I picked tonkie's shot, and it was the capture of colours that did it for me.

    Many great entries though, few mentions of those that just missed out - tontoshorse, Mike.P, Mart_73, M-C-P-M & ShaneWilson

    Well done everyone :smashin:

    Very tough to call this month, but due to the sheer ingenuity of the shot, I'm going for Shane Willson.
    Great thinking & nicely executed :smashin:

    Several shots were possible winners - very high standard this month.
    Tontoshorse, Paranormalist & Mike.P all caused me difficulties in picking a winner - kudos to you all!

    Still gutted I didn't manage to enter one in time this month....some great entries but went for MikeP, a lovely atmospheric shot.

    As Electrolyte said, shame that Hiker's entry wasn't here as that would have got my vote.

    One thing I have learnt from this months competition is to get my flickr posting skills up to scratch! I've also been impressed by the imagination many have used this month, and for me there are lots of winners worthy of note, several caught my eye listed below, (although ALL had something)

    Paranormalist - Excellent shot and I agonised over this and another before deciding.

    GarryF - A well observed shot, really liked it.

    Jack The Lad - A great shot, controversial to some, however most have used PP in our photographs and it still required the 'vision' and lighting.

    VolvomanV70 - Nice portrait shot, not posed.

    iandrews - Great imagination (and bravery!!)

    MCPM - Great imagination

    I liked lots of others too.. so it doesn't stop there.. Eventually though I went with tontoshorse for 'immediate impact', lovely compositon and clean look about it. Excellent!

    As always, my vote went to the photo that kept me going back for more.
    This month... that was Mike.P
    Stunning shot, and so much visual candy in there. So much going on. Love the mist. Fantastic shot. Promise me that even if you dont win, you get this photo printed to a canvas, and put it on a wall! :smashin:

    Runners up for me were (and as Dermot says: "In no particular order"):

    • GarryF (very different. Unique idea. pin sharp. My kids LOVED your shot)
    • Paranormalist (stunning pic. let down only by the figure. too much distraction for me, sorry! :blush:)
    • iandrews (loving the symmetry.)
    • ShaneWilson (Comedy will always work well with me!)
    • Tontoshorse (if only that signature wasn't on it... :( )

    I'm looking forward to spending some quality time working on a December shot, and hope the winner picks something good :D

    Firstly, a big well done to all that entered this month competition, in what was in my opinion not the greatest of themes.

    Secondly, a BIG thank you for my 3 votes,it goes to show that we all dont think alike.

    Lastly,my vote,it came down to 2 and that was Mike.P and tontos,but really wasn't that difficult cause as soon as I saw tontos it gave me the WOW factor.So tontos has it for me.

    Looking forward to tontos pick for next month, I'm sure we wont be disappointed:D

    Again well done all:smashin:

    I went for ShaneWillson, great take on the theme, and thinking outside of the (light) box.

    Others for me were: tontoshorse, northersoul, shotokan101 and Mike.P

    shame I didnt get any creative juices flowing this month- well done the rest of you:thumbsup:

    Clear winner for me this month- I love starlit skies/meteors(I know its a plane) and this is such a clean and clear capture it kept me coming back to look with envy. Well deserved vote to Tontohorse:smashin: (no he's not in my tribe:rolleyes:)

    Been out of action most of the month, hopefully next month will be different and i will get an entry in.

    It was a close choice for me between Tonto and Para amongst a lot of other fine entries.
    Went for Tonto in the end, hope you win as a reward for all the fine photographs you post on here James:smashin:
