Open - Liking your work, clearly a lot of preparation but it was worth it great idea
Distant - I like both you shots I do agree the latter crop is better.

Hi Jim, Love the idea of the can of worms, well taken with lots of detail in the worms, I think the blue bg works well too. Your edit of the distant image is an improvement, much better with out all the distracting bits (y) For me though I would go for the crosses. I like the large one in the foreground with the rest leading your eye to the back of the shot (y):D

We went to normandy last summer for our holidays and seeing the graveyards was a moving experience, for that reason I would choose that shot out of the two but with your edits the other shot is good as well.
Yep, those war graves certainly take the breath away the first time you see them! Did you manage to get to the German ones as well, also very poignant but very different to those of the US and UK.

Like the use of the whistle, I like the crop and composition you have used and I like that little star burst too.
open
great subject matter there! Lighting looks good and the colours are great too.
distant
Liking the 1st one, great idea, though I think it would be better without the people in the bg.
2nd, on theme, thought provoking, I would consider a b+w conversion.

A very striking image, Jim, and it fits the theme. I think I would have cropped a bit bigger to leave the hook a bit further into the shot, and not snip off the tail at the bottom.

And they're not ready until the fall from the rope ;)

Nicely done, nicely dead and will be very nice on the dinner table

A good take on the theme. I don't know if it's just because I'm looking on my phone, but the first bird (on the left) looks a little purple.

Any of those images for the waiting theme Jim, my pic is the 1st shot of the bird waiting for a worm. Nice colours and a good reflection.
Thanks for the comments, i'm really pleased with the one i've chosen

All great shots. The fishing boats (#1) for me. I like the composition of this shot.
Thanks, I was torn between this one and the one I chose but the colours just were'nt quite there for me (I didn't want to go too mad in PP)

Great work there Jim.
All fit the them well, are very nicely composed with great detail.
For me, it's #1, it's superb. and I have a soft spot for redshanks....I've photographed a few myself....none as good as this however.
Lovely colours and great, sharp details.
Ace!(y)
Wow! lovely comments, many thanks. I was very fortunate in that the bird just stayed put and I managed to get pretty close and get a few shots off before I got too bold and he flew off :)

Think you've covered all bases there :) I prefer the first boat one as i'm a sucker for those kind of scenes
