          OK, I have revealed the stats to the staff team (and will share them here later on, I promise), but they will now all be able to verify that I have not allowed it to influence my voting in any way, so I although I said I wouldn't, I think I am now safe to vote. I am voting purely for my favourites here......

          1st - Wiseowl - The Waters Edge.

          2nd - Trunky - Down By The Meadow

          3rd - Sian in Belgium - A Hereford Hay Meadow

          Almost impossible to choose, because each photo is so personal, and therefore so special...

          After a few searching thoughts, and eventually thinking “what would I be happy to live with on my wall”, looking through again, I have this arbitrary list

          1st Trunky “barley at dawn”
          2nd Spruce “hello you”
          3rd wiseowl “early morning mist”

              :star: This is the last month voting will take place like this.. We are trying out a new system. We shall be using the “LIKES” as your votes.. So basically every like is a vote and you can like as many photos as you want in each comp..
              This will make it a lot easier for you all and for me.. :whistle: So the photo with the most likes will be the winner with second and third chosen in the same way.. Very simple and means you don’t have to come back and choose a winner in a votes thread.. You all come and look and “like” a pic anyway, so I will count up at the end.. Simples... We hope you will agree this is a much easier way and in a strange way, very fair.. :star:

                :yay: Yay congratulations to our winners for June.. @Trunky and @wiseowl... :yay:

                Some really great photos, a shame some said they felt they couldn’t vote as too many pics but our new way of counting votes (see above)should take care of that in the future so you will get recognition for your photos..:yahoo:

                  @CanadianLori, thank you for your interest :) however, this might bore you to sleep....

                  I counted 62 posts as I couldn't divide the likes between photos in posts with more than one photo. All in all that gave no less that 631 votes (likes etc).

                  The average number of likes per post across the board was 10.28 - - that is quite a phenomenal number when you think about it; in any other thread, a post with that number of likes would indicate a post that is quite remarkable.

                  @hydrogardener achieved the highest number of total likes overall, having submitted the most pictures.

                  BUT - it was @roders who achieved the highest average number of likes

                  Totting up the likes/votes (going by the number of likes per post/photo) worked out as follows:

                  Joint First
                  @Sian in Belgium - A Night Wanderer
                  @Trunky - Down By The Meadow

                  Joint Second
                  @hydrogardener - Yellow Warbler
                  @hydrogardener - Bee-licious

                  Joint Third
                  @wiseowl - Soft Center
                  @Marley Farley - Phew!
                  @roders - Fledgling Time

                  Dunces Cap
                  @Fat Controller - Walking Into A Bit Of A Stew

                    @Fat Controller … instant headache.

                    I will be sure to only hit the "like" for those that I think I would actually count as a favourite rather than all the ones I just liked... oops.... "busted"

                    Then I perhaps I will choose the "friendly" button for great picture and the "creative" for enjoying the title.
