      Lots of smashing photos again making it difficult to choose but here's my top 3....

      1. Loli......."Wheel of 'fern'-tune." I really like the composition, I love ferns.....lovely shot!

      2. "M"....."Pinwheel Plant Poke." A different take on the subject of "wheels"....I like the colours, the flowers behind the pinwheel and the blue sky above.

      3. Woo...."Nature's Wheel." A fab shot showing a natural work of art.

          1..........Marley Farley..........The Best!!..........A great shot! The detail/focusing is spot on, not easy to achieve with a subject like this.

          2..........Jack McHammocklashing..........The Final Ride.........A good clear shot and an unusual subject.

          3.........."M"...........Pinwheel Plant Poke...........So simple, but inspired.

              Some fabulous entries and so difficult to choose :scratch:

              1. "The Final Ride" - poignant, amazing colours and I like it!

              2- "The Best!" - Wow! Very marketable photo; thought it belonged in a magazine.

              3- "Lady Fenella" - wonderful angle! (Composition?)

              And 4th (yes, I know we can't have one ... but we should (!) goes to "Wheelie Bin" because it really made me chuckle and is so contemporary! :snork:

                  1st......Loli.....Wheel of Fern-tune - Interesting subject, well captured. Has a real 'texture' to it.

                  2nd......Sheal.....Wot no steam? - Good subject and plenty of background interest too.

                  3rd......M.....Pinwheel plant poke - Nice bright, colourful shot with a cheery feel.

                      And here is the vote from the Northampton audience.

                      In 3rd place..... Paladin, with 'Wheelie worn out', lets just say I know the feeling, and the photo captures the tiredness really well.

                      An extremely close 2nd..... WOO, with 'Natures wheel', for me would have had top spot, but just a little out of focus.

                      And in 1st place..... Loli, with 'Wheel of Fern-tune'. Good straight forward photo, clear and to the point. Would love a feature like that in my garden.

                      BUT, you are all winners in my view, well done to everyone who entered, your photos brighten up the most gloomy of days. Thank You. :love30:
