Thanks for including mine, Colin. Being a polite (sometimes) Canadian, I won't vote for myself. Very nice selection, with lots of variety.

Wow - tough choice! All excellent! I could have voted for any of them but forced myself to make a choice so I would not forget to come back and vote. Congrats to all the finalists.

Just checking in after a huge weekend, and would like to say thank you for selecting one of mine which just so happens to be from last year's running of this weekend's event.

Thank you so much. That's a huge surprise given the high quality of the images selected and the fact that I wasn't even sure I'd have anything in my portfolio worth offering up. I'll have a think about the August challenge after I've studied what subjects have been up before as I'm quite new to this area of the forum.

Many thanks Wim. It may partly be your profile photo, but you remind me of that 'meme' that would say something like 'I don't always know everything, but when I do, it's everything' 😄
