That was an easy one, I really liked the thought that had gone into the composition. Just about squeezing the end of the pier in. I’m from Bristol but I knew that tower straight away.

That’s a stunning shot Michael. I wish I’d taken it. I’ll leave it at that!

No probs Bryan. Again superb composition and it’s really hard to get something a bit different of something that’s photographed so much.

Thank you very much for including mine. I was a bit unsure whether my interpretation was correct

 

Small story behind the shot... for the first couple of days we photographers could get some OK positions but for the final days they were less than good. I spent a long time  time perched on a rubbish bin to get my shots of the high bar. The floor exercises looked like this:

 

Antwerp, Belgium. 6th October, 2013. World Championships Gymnastics 2013  Individual apparatus finals. Womens floor. - Stock Image

 

With the beam I like to get the apparatus in the shot but the background was really messy. I was just walking to the positions along a corridor when a previous gymnast popped up with a lovely background. Great position... if they happen to jump up in my direction.. a bit of a gamble. Fortunately the key gymnasts did.

Excellent shortlist Steve - first competition I have not entered for a while, as I was away,  but I would not have made the final!!

No problem at all. I think your image fits the theme just fine (as well as being great in its own right). I'm sure she's iconic to all the aspiring youngsters trying to emulate an idol and gymnast fans around the world. I showed the picture to a girl I work with and she recognised and named her straight away. I really enjoyed the write ups you've provided as well.

Chuffed to have made the final cut for the first time. Thank you.

 

That car, so iconic and a great pic of it as well
