    I'm starting to look like a sycophant, but I have to vote for DJW again this month! I think it's the most original interpretation, nice composition and excellent contrast.

    I've always had a thing for pictures of old wrecks, too.

    Sean that was the tester page, the correct link is this one! dont think mattym would be happy with me having missed him off ;)

    Just noticed I missed off Coops666 entry but unfortunately I wont be home until later so apologies for that one, been more difficult keeping track this month due to the way the entries are treated as proper threads now (moving about) instead of static as in previous comps.
    Coops666 now added to thumbnail page :oops:

    Some good entries - but mine goes to DJW. I love abstract shots.

    Plus I couldn't decide between all the other yawning shots! ;)

    Some nice shots this month.

    I couldnt decide between the one I went for and that great one of the guy on the keyboard. hehe that one was great ! The guy's head.....on the keyboard....pressing the "Z" key..... so it gives us tired as in sleeping and also tired as in the cartoon Z's !

    well i voted for Jimbo_wa, it was either that or Zone. Of the photos shown those 2 came out aat me the best. Matt F i would have liked yours best if you had left the photoshop filter out of it. The shot of the guy asleep under the window would have been better if it wasnt too bright......witters, the flowerpot ruins it for me, otherwise nice shot...

    i havent time to comment on all the shots, im working apparently, but i may do so later, if you all want some honest comments...

    Yet again I found it really difficult to decide but went for Zone in the end. His photo captured how nice it is to sleep sometimes. :thumbsup:

    Geordie J's, nobackwheel's, Mr Jones and DJW's get honourable mentions as well.

    Voted for you cos I like the way you have brought out the skin texture.

    Couldn't bring myself to vote for Geordie Jester for a few reasons.

    1) looked too posed
    2) the sight of Adam (his 'model') licking a keyboard ain't too appealing
    3) he'd get all smug if I voted for him

    :D

    To be honest we're all too nice to eachother here when you go on other sites and share your stuff you better have some tissues handy you just might end up in tears:laugh:

    But you learn more from well balanced honest comments, but i just dont think its suited to this forum to give 100% honest comments i can just see me editing and closing threads left right and centre:laugh:

    Agree wholeheartedly (is it one long word?) with you Sean we are too nice to each other but I also agree with you we are not the forum that can yet accept 100% critique on our pics.
    Its a bit of fun that anyone and everyone, young and old, small or tall, fat or thin, black or white......you get the picture :) can join in with, we're not Fred Miranda yet but how many entries did we have this month 43?? Its getting bigger all the time so who knows where it'll end, more the better eh?? :clap:

    kind of a no brainer really

    take out all the smelly pussys and dirty dogs and it leaves very few images, the only one of the baby photos that caught my eye was zones

    but i voted for kevH in the end, i just like the shot and the interpretation, it looks like something id probably end up with in the backdrop of a band shot or something

    Some comments from me..

    I saw one picture that said tired to me without explanation - so I voted for it. I have not read any (OK I saw one or two) explanations as they seem to be excuses for why the picture should be acceptable. Some seem so irrelevant to the theme (I'm surprised there are no sunsets :) ).

    And I think ... if it is possible... things like this competition should be anonymous entries. Member x won last month so his pics must be good... I'll vote for him again and maintain my credibility ( OK exaggeration but you get the idea).

    Why only vote for one entry? There would still be a winner if I could vote for all the pictures I like.

    Oh and Zones page is a good idea but I can't get to full size images from it. This is the first month I've seen all the entries. The poll linking to the images made it possible. Linking to the threads to each entry just made me give up before, as i kept closing what I thought was a new window and closing the whole lot. In other words the interface is clumsy compared to other photo comps I've seen. No doubt the improvement will continue.

    I saw my entry when I was in Prague and I had the camera with me... I just did not have the bottle to make a spectacle of myself in a very public place getting the shot :suicide:

    I think one man/woman one vote is fair and straight forward, we're voting for who we think should win and not what we like, we can express what else we liked here. I see no need to keep the votes hidden this is a fun comp and so shall it remain. Only a nut would vote for somebody to look good and if they were that way they could just say they voted for the winner right here anyway:laugh:

    Tired did have a lot of scope, you can be tired of putting up with something tired physically, emotionally.

    Where as the sun led to what many think was dullest comp we've had, has it just left little scope.

    I have to say though this month saw a lot of the same shots and my first entry was one of them, and i changed it to something a bit more lateral involving the idea of being tired of something.

    Nothing wrong with a theme with wide scope... but it's a photo competition* (accepted it is just for fun) why does a picture need text to justify it? If its on topic it should be possible to work out it's relevance from the image.

    No thoughts on anonymous entries (beyond the nuts comment)?

    *unless its a idea on a theme + supporting photo comp :)
