Thanks to all those who contributed their images for the September 2016 Challenge. All submissions were superb works, making my choice of the finalists just that much more difficult. Here is the poll-page anyways.

And thanks from me Kumar. I've not entered one of these comps in quite a while as I didn't have suitable shots on Alamy so it's nice to see one shortlisted.

My pleasure MDM. Your pic carried so much of the 'flavour of your land' (that too with the Twelve Bens mountains in background) that I found it hard to overlook it. All the very best. Cheers.

Lovely selection of finalists, Kumar. It's certainly a selection best viewed on a BIG monitor.

Yup, indeed. I use a pretty huge, color-corrected monitor ... and it was simply divine viewing these images therein, Since I haven't had any experience in structuring an Alamy POLL, I just Googled with that intent, and fortunately I could spot a very lucid post - most probably by you, If I'm not mistaken. Thanks & cheers,

It is indeed pretty difficult. Decreasing choices at individual level can be fairly subjective, and the POLL ! Cheers.
