    You only picked one of mine :(

    LOL. I've had great hopes for that 16th image, I entered it to all the major competitions and got nowhere with it and I rate it as my best ever landscape. Perhaps just the joy of seeing that Loch Still did it

    You take wonderful technical images but personally I think that they lack a bit of emotion. Think back to last years winner and it was full of raw power and volatility, I see you image 16 and think wow I wish I was there right now looking at that view and yeah I'd like that image for my collection but I couldn't see it winning any competitions unfortunately.

    That's the emotional pull ;)

    Mood doesn't have to be a split tone, vingette, big black point and under exposed image of a wet field LOL

    The wildlife list of entrants had 6 images all with a watermark added where a landscape image was removed for the same thing. The wildlife shortlist still has 2 images with a watermark in place which shouldnt have been shortlisted even though they are decent images.

    Sorry!

    I only picked one of mine too! To be fair the other Vestrahorn shot, apart from lacking a bit of breathing space on the RHS is better than mine.

    I don't think reflections are popular. For me, a perfect reflection conveys such tranquility about a scene and literally doubles the beauty of nature by showing it to you twice. It also captures a unique moment, which for you is what that shot achieves. Same with my Thurne Mill one, I could go back a dozen times and not get that light with that quality of reflection.

    Agree. It’s a killer shot.

    Plus there’s a beauty to symmetry. I was out today in the snow, no reflections going and I got good pictures but not the emotional high of seeing a perfect reflection in water.

    Thanks to the organisers and judges for taking the time to set this up, I’m well chuffed to take 2nd and 3rd place in the sports category I’m thinking the race horse will take the win here and thoroughly deserved as it’s an epic image thanks again to everyone involved

    The race horse your right is seriously epic. Crops a little tight on the left. Has it ruined it for it? Will it beat you by a head..... Sorry it's late the family are all asleep I'm killing time before I can stick the presents out
