"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I was worried for the first few days that there weren't going to be any entries and then we got loads of excellent photos within a day or two of each other! Judging was genuinely tougher than I thought it would be but here are my thoughts:

OldCrow: Really like the atmosphere in this photo and it makes me feel like I'm stood on top of a huge drop below.

Teekay: I like the horizontal banding in this one and the glass-like look of the water. Almost looks frozen!

M_Six: Great silhouette image with a really nice backdrop and perfect composition.

darkslinger: I love the tones of grey you've captured in this shot with the water and horizon barely separated. Again, great composition and atmosphere!

Tom Reichner: There's something about a good telephoto landscape that really appeals to me. Really nice colour throughout the image and the multiple bands of dark and light have been used to great effect.

Scatterbrained: Great use of colour in this photo. Are the rocks in the foreground overhanging the water? I thought they were in it at first but there is a crisp line separating them from the blurred water. Very interesting!

Paul B: Nice shot of a great looking location, really reminds me of a beach very near me in the UK. The orange of the sand and blue of the sky go really well together.

RESULTS:

Winner - darkslinger
Second - Tom Reichner
Third - M_Six

Well done and thanks to all, seven great images for me to judge!

kept seeing things i wanted to shoot but weather causing delays getting home, or heading someplace with long travel time precluded me stopping and shooting...


i went through the images and they were judged the same way i would have done them. although i was looking at them all week long trying to decide which way to go...

glad it wasnt MY topic to judge...

whats up next?
