July Challenge - We have a winner!

Recommended Posts

Thank you all for participating and voting in the July challenge!

 

After a very strong race, we have a clear winner.
Philippe escaped the peleton right from the starting line and stayed in the lead of the course till the finish line.
The others came a bit nearer in the end, but it's Philippe who can stage the next race.
 
At noon the tally was:
 
1 - Philippe Clement - lightning striking an oil refinery (14 votes [30.43%])

Keith Douglas - Rifugio Duca Degli Abruzzi (6 votes [13.04%])

Alan Wrigley (Inchiquin) - The Kelpies at night in Falkirk, Stirling (5 votes [10.87%])
Michael Ventura - Baltimore Inner Harbor with couple on Federal Hill (5 votes [10.87%])

Ann E Parry - Javits Center reflecting Manhattan with the New York Hotel (4 votes [8.70%])
Graham Morley - Coronation Buildings Vauxhall in 1968 (4 votes [8.70%])
John Keates (Stokie) - Two Cornish tin mines near Pendeen (4 votes [8.70%])
Jools Elliott - Florence sunset over the Arno River - video (3 votes [6.52%])
Phil Crean - Seagulls on a crane on Tenerife (1 votes [2.17%])

 

The quality level of the images was very high and made selection more difficult than I had expected.

Except for the number one, which is indeed a striking, forgive the pun, image, this is visible in the outcome as well: quite a dense pack. One of my favorites came last. My own vote is in there in the number 3 region. My own runner up would have been in the number 4 region.

 

Now it's over to Philippe.

 

Thanks again everybody for your images and your votes!

Congratulations Philippe. Despite the strong field, it certainly isn't shocking your image won!

Well done Phillipe with your oil refinery image - it was always going to be the one to beat.

 

Thanks everyone for your votes to put my image in second place - my best ever finish. Coming second has its plus points - I just avoided the stress of having to come up with a subject for August, and more importantly, having to judge what will inevitably be some great work!!
