hello to everyone and thank you for the photographs
I loved all of the entries very much and it is difficult making any choices as many are firm favourites, all in different ways


photos listed in order as they came

No 1 ubermich
'fences and gates'

its exactly what it says on the tin ...... the showing of gates and fences together
unusual to see the likes exactly like so. nice tops on the gates
nice capture. I lke the lighting too


no 2

Claudeharris
'A rooster on a fence on a farm on a fence'

ha ha ha ha
pull the other one
j/k

: )

love the colours , the mixture and the crazy disorientated appearance
countrylife at its magical best
and I love the pointed tops of railings peeping through

No 3

Kevan G9
'Flower Power'

great capture. perfect title. flower power is here alright., and the defences are down :lol:

its like as though they tried and tried to break through ...
some even succeeded to knock down those lovely 'slats' with their winning ways right through to the other side
love what the message is 'saying'

No 4

Car
' A River Runs through it '

Gosh, what a flood
. hope everyone was ok around there Carolyn
beautiful railings and they really show up the amount of swirling water gushing all around


No 5

Jim Askew

' And I have miles to go before I sleep'


the walk through here must be very pleasant and well worth going that extra mile I would imagine
you took a lovely angle with photo of the fence


No 6

Erik1974

'Forgotten gateway'

very nice
leading up to the arched gateway the setting is magic
through the arch looks a little too over exposed to complete the scene really well


No 7

Kshootit

'Papers Please'.. entrance to a cemetery dating back to the 1800's'

well seen this fence and entrance is perfect and lovely as a small sign of protection around an historical and burial mound


No 8

CarloY

'Unabashed'

smashing display on the hoarding fence so colourful by the side of the street
and special lights above it I imagine making it very attractive as night falls
........ and well taken


No 9

Teekay


'Wrought with a Twist'


excellent fence, looks like a huge metal spider or maybe like a crab...... just hanging on there
great angle and terrific sight
(wonder is it near a dam)

No 10


Corythosaurus

'Short Fences'

marvellous makeshift fence. wonderful how it was put together
really nice to see it and the photo

No 11
Audiosteve


'please stay on the path for your own safety and enjoyment'

as the people round the corner ahead seems special
and the chain fence is in keeping with the beautiful area

No 12

Michael Wells
'Old Cemetery Gate'

Gorgeous detail and colours. love the stonework railings and 'caps' ...not sure what they would be called,
except beautiful probably

No 13

Afkenner

'Shockade Fence'

its a very pretty scene for a fence, delightful sight. I bet children love it
I do
lol

No 14
Rpolitsr

' urban nonsense '


what a collaboration of 'danger, keep out or else' , ' enter .....at your peril' , kind of thing


maybe there are prisoners somewhere there, behind those twisted wires
a great capture to get ......... the picture is

best Congratulations to the Winner
# 1 Teekay

to runner up # 2 Kevan

to #3 Michael Wells


all well deserved

great pictures, thanks to everyone


end
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

: )Hello everyone

my apologies for the delay in starting

for the subject of this challenge I was thinking ......
(I try not to do it too often )
(think that is)

lol
its about : fences and gates

even the thought of them may seem slightly mundane ,
but without them ?

what wood we do :eek:

they can be beautiful sometimes, are so essential in many instances
even at their worst (weather beaten etc ) they somehow manage to look good, old age creeping along slightly twisted and wrought iron limbs
or beloved wooden slats (not sluts) bent to the wind, moss maybe in their creases, maybe rotting with neglect:(
:shock:
whatever,
(get over it marie) ..... they always seem to have character

photos of the best angles showing whatever fences (or gates) are maybe favourites in your area, maybe with that character
( the photographer another character )
:mrgreen:

hopefully my defences (:p) will be down when judging and I will have them all as winners.
I look forward to seeing them

thanks
and may the best gate crash
not Bill now... but gates which hang around and help to protect certain areas from the bulls...
lol
:rolleyes:

Good Luck :)
