    As a bit of fun I thought we'd have a little poll as to which competition winner over the last 12months was deemed to be head and shoulders above all others :D

    No prizes this time around but that aside I hope it showcases the wealth of talent and above all else enthusiasm we have here and I'm sure there are newcomers who have never seen any of these pictures before and of course those of us of advancing years with the memory of goldfish that have simply forgotten them :D

    Well a very hard decision, but I went for December.

    I do like night time shots and it just looked nice. I also really liked:

    January & Ice
    March & Raw
    April & Action
    June & Movement
    July & Energy
    October & Self portrait

    The rest are all good to.

    Great to see them all together - cheers Zone. I have to say looking back through these that, although I love iandrews' shot from last month and it was a landside winner, the two that stand out for me are both SSB's. The pure energy shot really leaps out (no pun intended) from the thumbnail page, so that's the champion of champions for me.

    Though I don't think I voted for it in the monthly comp as I think another photo said "Energy" to me more, I have gone for SSB's July photo. Seeing it again now just shows how good it was.

    Went for Zones Kiwi fruit, this was the first shot I took notice of on this forum and one that inspired me to start entering the competition.

    It was also the first time that I realised how important the framing of a photo was.

    A worthy winner for that month as have all of them been (humbly remembering I am also patting myself on the back).

    Completely missed this thread :eek:
    Seeing all the winners together in the thumbnail page really shows what a bunch of talented photographers are on this site :smashin:
    All 12 photos are amazing in their own right but for me, it's Bill's November shot that stands out. The colour of the shot just grabbed me and the simplicity of it shows that, with a little thought, any one of us can take a superb image irrespective of what equipment we have :).
    A big well done to all the other winners too :thumbsup:

    Zones is my favourite - a beautifully executed shot.

    I love the idea of showcasing all these together. Really nice to see them again.

    I had to give my vote to SSB (July - 'Energy'). I voted for it in July, and still think that its an amzing photo. You've got some real talent there!

    I think these others also deserve a :smashin:

    January-Ice
    March-Raw
    December-Architecture
