Thanks, Tim. That shot was taken late afternoon when the sun was low with that golden-yellow hue.Hi Stan,
I was going to say my preference was the first abstract shot due to the colours and abstract feel, and maybe it does still edge it, but I'm really liking the Monday at 10:44 image. You have the motion caught really well and somehow produced an image that could be decades old (if wind turbines were decades old). It's a bit of a contradiction - which gives it edge.
Thanks, Tim. Just luck that they sat next to my table.I've a feeling I might end up with something along these lines (just not as good).
Seems to me that plenty of Gin was being consumed, and the green of the lime pops well against the more subdued tones of the wood.
Cheers, Allan. That's women (sorry Andrea Manxmaid) for you and After Eight mints too.A good scene for the theme, tomato sauce though
Thanks, Dave. Yes, Its far too early party is over and one more theme for us to complete this year challenge.The party is over - hope it was a goodun
Mainly wimmin I;d say by the glasses
Cheers, Gareth and looking forward to your participation in 2019.Nice perspective....I count 11 glasses....and one tankard!!
A great captured moment!
Party is a nice shot and good for the theme.
Showcase shots are very good and only 50,000 views But my choice is your last image, great colours and spot on composition with the road coming in to view and having the tree just nails the shot.
Well done for finishing, the lone pine picture is very good
Have a great new year Stan
Beautiful images Stan....I'm very glad that you had to make the decision....for me it's impossible to choose, all three are first class!
That said, I think you made the right choice....the lone pine landscape is simply stunning!
Hi Stan, I enjoyed reading and seeing your thought process for Motion; the images all work well but you hit the mark with the last one; the extra sense of motion in the turbines and the interesting sky make that one the winner
Party was a good spot and it does look like the remnants of a party or relaxed get-together. I like the top-down view so we can see the textures of the wooden tabletop and the little splashes of colour from the sauce bottles and limes.
You've picked three excellent images for your Showcase shortlist. I have seen and remember the first two, but the last one is a great choice; a beautiful landscape with wonderful light, a sweeping leading line from the road, and stunning snowy details in the skyline. I would be very happy if that was my image and well done on finishing another 52
