Hi all, well I've done my research and, being a newbie around the forums, I had no idea the competition had been running so long, I counted 53 previous themes. Consequently lots of excellent ideas have already been used. My first choice of theme, Shoot Local, had already gone, and not too long ago, so I didn't feel I could re-use that. However, there is one glaring omission from the previous subjects, as far as I could tell (I'll apologise now if I've missed it, it worries me its not there). Anyway the September challenge is..... Critters. I've used the phrase Critters to throw this open as wide as possible so it includes everything, tame or wild, outdoors or indoors, in the studio or as it happened. I'll post a list, in another message, of all the previous themes I found rather than waste the research. I've added a few of my efforts below just to get things rolling.... Steve Working Critters... A Critter in the studio... One unlucky Critter... My Mother in Law, oh hang on, that's a different kind of critter, LOL...
Hi, Ok, it's poll time. This was very tricky to narrow down, because of the diversity of images. In the end I went for those images, that managed to involve me emotionally at some level, either because they're visually stunning, or because they're funny, unusual, interesting. That of course is highly subjective, hence you may well not agree with my short list. And there are lots of very stunning shots that I left out of the short list, which could easily be swapped for any of the 8 short listed. Beyond the Competition : Special Mention for best 'wildlife on the beach' series of images: NY Cat's three images of a polar bear, walrus hangout and grizzly mum teaching clamming. Just so beautiful! I would give a lot to be able to spot and photograph just one of these on a beach, let alone all three. Second special mention: two images that are perhaps visually tricky to pitch against all those stunning sunsets and funny beach shots in the short list, but impressed me with their interesting though-provoking content were Lars Marsden's drinks can on the beach, and Wiskerke's THUMS Island. Both are quieter, less attention-grabbing images, but in many ways capturing. Ditto for Bryan's crowded beach in Gran Canaria - love that shot! But it made me so claustrophobic that I had to look away. Sorry! :-)
