The "Its Not Valid" thread

I missed the competition last month as I was on holiday in Australia.

Looking through my photographs from the trip I came across this and thought I'd add it to this month's "not valid" thread.




I was going to enter one of these, but feel I made the right choice (at least I hope I did) :)

The shell was not in focus hence the reason I did not enter this one.

I like the way the ring flash has caught on the end's of the snails ommatophores (eye stalks thanks wikipedia) - Didn't enter this one as I was not keen on the composition.

A father protecting his son from the wind. Because that's what fathers do.
But the photo, which is heavily cropped from the original, just didn't 'do it' for me, so I went with my one of the Castle at Fitou, where the wine comes from.
