    Many thanks for all you have done here Chadwick. There have been some interesting responses to the different categories and much debate as to the differences of opinion between members and judges. I for one think the effort you put in to choosing the categories and administering them was much appreciated and that your example photos in each case were inspirational.
    Whatever form next year takes I look forward to it.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Going back to this years comp, and I mean no offence to our winners, but they weren't my personal favourites. I had to stand by and watch as the Judges discarded my choices (not that I had indicated this to them) in favour of the ones who won.

    If it were down to me, I'd have gone for:
    Some Like it Hot


    Blur


    Goldfinger


    I thought these three were a clever and relevant take on their chosen titles. Some Like it Hot shows hot peppers, sparkler hearts and a burning photo of Marilyn Monroe, linking it nicely to the film.

    Blur is so simple in its concept, connecting with the name itself but also copying the cover art concept of the CD itself.

    Goldfinger is a literal interpretation of the title, but it also depicts a key scene from the film. I have a feeling the actual film posters also featured a similar image.

    But, it's not my choice. I know who sent each picture in, so to avoid any bias, I let the pictures speak for themselves and the Judges pick the winners with nothing more than the photos and titles to go on. Just goes to show how different people perceive the images in different ways.

    too simple :P and is that a pot of sunpat peanut butter the pic taker could've avoided getting in the shot with a bit of effort? (blur pic)

    Well done Chadwick. It was fun having the monthly effort to think of specific themed shots. It wasn't always fun watching pics nose dive in the votes, but over the whole comp, that probably evens out

    Chadwick,
    I understand your comments and take no personal offence, as you say choices are very subjective .
    I did have a few other options but have to say a big part of my reasoning in choosing Snow Leopard for my final entry was based on decisions in previous rounds.

    Yes, they did seem to favour animal pics.... I noticed that but felt it wasn't right to post that on the forums. Maybe next year I'll shake up the panel a bit.
