Not an easy shortlist to compile either. Plenty of great shots had to be excluded. 

 

@Phil Crean has the right attitude although his claims of winning are a bit grandiose as he very nearly made the shortlist...:D

Excellent choices Russell, interesting challenge! Now all I have to do is decide which way to vote - not an easy task ...
