Wow, there’s been some really great entries. Thanks everyone for your submissions :)


Here’s my completely subjective and very personal top 3.


1. puzzledpaul's duck.

Congratulations. This is exactly what I was looking for. It's clear what's happening, no distractions and a great mood. This is awesome :thumb

2. Reaching for the light by Cavalier.

The light and the colours and the mood are great. Lovely bokeh. Must have been hard to focus correctly too. There is a lot going on, and the the bug gets a little bit lost in the background. It's competing a bit with the flower as a subject. Great work though!

3. End of a long day by Gatto.

Cool! Very nice. Great colours and I love the positioning of the sun. Well done. I do believe however that the composition could do without the right side of the photo and in my opinion it would make a stronger image if cropped to portrait. (And may I suggest a more subtle signature in you photo's?).

And an honorable mention for Synature.

I love this one. It has a great story to it and it's a lot of fun. But it could do with a bit more contrast for drama's sake. And cropping off the right to make it a square would improve composition in my opinion.

    Well, thanks (I think :) ) for deciding that my pic 'hit the spot' of what you were looking for in this title ... I definitely agree with your sentiments re light direction when taking pics.

    I'll have an overnight ponder on this and there'll (almost certainly) be something up by this time tomorrow.

    Thank you for the honorable mention. Appreciate your comments, I agree more contrast might be nice; however, for me the story trumped the back lighting and wanted more horizontal space. Certainly were a lot of great images this time around.
