Many thanks to all who entered, some wonderfully weird shots of the sort that I enjoy. There were also some fabulous classic portraits that tempted me, but remembering that I asked for quirkiness, I reluctantly put those to one side. I easily picked out 12 possible winners, could have been more, but then had great difficulty in homing in on the final eight, so you probably just missed inclusion by a millipede!

 

Anyone voting for their own photo will be subject to public ridicule.

 

I won't vote, although I have a favourite, and will use my casting vote in the event of a dead heat. (Edit - I had to vote in order to see the results!)

 

Edit - The deadline for voting is UK dawn on the 7th when I will mail the winner.

 

Let battle commence!

Did you mean to add the images, Bryan? They aren't showing.

I'm having problems with thumbnails not showing this AM so maybe that's it.

The thumbnails are there for me but as Mike said, very small.  I went back to the original contest thread to view the larger images.

Sorry about the size issue, have replaced the thumbnails with larger images

Nice to be in such exalted company. Thanks for putting me in the shortlist Bryan.

You deserve to be there - and to be winning. Looking at your pix you seem to have had a good couple of minutes that day, with the same seagull.

Thank you for including my man and his dog, I'm honoured!  He was a very interesting character and loved talking to people about his dog.

Maria, I love it that the angle you chose makes the dog look bigger than the man.

Thanks Paulette.  The angle doesn't exaggerate the dog's size too much, it was huge!  The biggest dog I've ever seen.  He easily drew a crowd and his owner was quite happy to answer questions about him.
