Recommended Posts

There used to be a song:

So Many People....

But I don't remember who sang it? Blur, Oasis?

 

Anyway, congratulations Andy, and here come my three:

Hi, thanks for that info. I will update the keywords later. Regarding the composition, i was walking past on the way to another shoot and only had the time to stop and shoot 3 frames, this image was the 3rd frame.

This will be a very difficult competition to judge and I almost didn't enter because the standard of entries is so high and I'm fairly sure I don't have anything as special as what other people have already posted.. but for the fun of it...

 

1. Carnival people...

2. Happy young boy wearing a bicycle helmet.

Not long left for this comp, it closes for entries tomorrow at midnight UK time.  Although it's going to be an absolute nightmare to choose the final 8 pics, let's see some more entries!

I've a request - can I choose 10 as the final, er, 8...? 😳

 

Other people have done it but I always resent it since I have chosen 8. That's just me being bitter though and remembering the two I eliminated (years ago).

As I said elsewhere.  Lay the images out, blind fold, and toss darts in the air, first eight are them. Saves a lot of hassle and no one will question your better judgement.

If you're really strggling ... Print them out, place them face down, swirl them around and pick 8, blind.  🤯
