DECISION TIME – can wait no longer

The photo competition closed officially yesterday lunchtime, but given the fact that OZ had said he would be posting something and is currently suffering Lupine Influenza I thought I’d give him some leeway.

Sadly he has not posted, and the number of photos submitted remains low: only four this time.

(Have I somehow jinxed it all by setting such defined parameters? Maybe it was the time frame? (I had said only photos taken during the period of the competition – was that too harsh)

Anyway, the photos submitted were interestingly different.

Ricksrant sent us ‘Frogspawn’ which is a true reflection of the theme, but photographically is was visually less appealing than the others. (Sorry Rick. A difficult picture to take I’m sure)

Low Wattage sent us a photo of ‘Brush Fire, evening, Camp Lejuene NC, March 24 2011’ and this is a wonderfully smoky scene lit up by soft evening light.

Donald sent us a photo of a beautiful baby, who just happens to be his grandson – should have been posted in the thread as a comment, but never mind!

Coldwaterjohn sent us a photo of a Victoria plum tree blossoming on a south facing wall.

The decision rested between the smoky scene and the blossom, and I have found it quite difficult to decide. However the final choice goes to Coldwaterjohn, for the delicacy and focus in his picture – I liked the fact that the flowers were both in bud and open, leaving us with a sense of pleasure now and pleasure to come.

Over to you, Coldwaterjohn, for the setting of the next, (7th) photo competition!

No time to lose. No, time to lose. Make time to stand and stare.... Did you see that?

  1. I know it was hard to get the shot, took 8 attempts but the light was all wrong (sob) the best one had a reflection of the camera on it as well.

  2. Hi Pseu, yes I’m afraid it was the time frame that did for me. I could have hooked something out of the archives but nose has been to grindstone here lately. Enjoyed the pics though!

  3. Thanks Pseu. On this occasion may I pass the task of setting the next subject and rules to Low Wattage, whose JMW Turner-inspired skies were spectacular; provided he is willing to do so? I am not sure when his ship reaches home port. If he can’t manage it, certainly I will come up with something suitably fiendish…
