I have also really struggled to make my choice. There are elements I like in all of them. I like the firework shots, but in the end for me it came down to either Rawshorty's "On the Lake" or Jabtas's "Drilling Rig".

I am going to vote for Rawshorty as I could see that picture on my wall.

Great entries from everyone this week and i too have been having a hard time to pick a winner, but after going through them for hours my vote goes to Edmund. I like how there is movement every where but the statue is still with his hand up as if to say "slow down people". Again well done everyone for some great pics.

Great shots indeed!

My vote goes out to: rawshorty - Carillion

The sky is really amazing and the silhouettes from the tree's and the bridge is very nice lit :).

Once again, great entries everyone
Nice to see that this little comp is getting more popular as the weeks go on

Ok here goes my words of wisdom, advice or just plain personal musings on everyones entries ;)

Madjack, Firepalm - nice colourful fireworks shot, not sure whether it was cropped or SOOC but foe me it needs a little bit more space to get all of the bursts in the shot. Great exposure tho and the 5s works well to include lots of movement in the flares

masterwillems - great shot of the typical deserted gas station we have all seen in the movies, excellent exposure gives just enough light to illuminate the road but still prevents any blowing out of the lights

highergr0und - another great firework shot, this time with the whole explosion in the shot which for me gives a much greater balance within the image, only let down by the fact it was handheld

rawshorty, Carillion - great shot of an amazing structure, also taken at the right time of the evening to still hold some colour in the sky. The stillness of the water really does help with the mirror image to balance out the shot

rawshorty, On the lake - soryy, not a big fan of this one. The shot overall seems too dark and too distant, apart from the points of lights very little detail is visible

idlefrog - great interpretation of the theme, out of the two images I think I prefer the flashing light mode. Almost looks like a swarm of fireflys have invaded your garden

Islandhitman - great sky in this shot, I'm also a big fan of the way the lights are turned into stars by the use of a small aperture

Madjack, STOP-GO? - Excellent use of the long exposure, maybe a slight tweak to the WB but other than that a great 'light trails' shot

edmyloo - WOW, what a place. as previously mentioned, the contrast between the seemingly rapidly moving people and the immobile statue really does work well together

Taking all of the above into account, my final vote goes to rawshorty's Carrilion shot
In a word, SUPERB !!!!

Thanks for the votes and kind words guys. I must admit i was very happy with my result with the Carillon shot, i got there early to set up and by the time i left there was about a dozen people there taking photo's of it.
Now a quick question i have noticed we had 2 #10 challenges and on the thread page this was #11 but on Andrews OP it is #12 so shall i make the next one #13 ????? it will be our thirteenth one after all.

Madjack pointed out to me the last one should be #12 but when I tried to change it the entry in the index didn't change just my original post. The next one should be #13.

No problems, Tim. It is only a little thing just thought i would get it back on track. On a side note perhaps we could start a thread to show what challenges have been used so far so new guys that win can see what has been done allready.
