December 2014 photo results

Sea and / or Sky

What a wonderful array of entries we had this month, first and foremost I’d like to thank all contributors for their efforts. There’s nothing worse than being a judge and running a fun challenge to receive a meagre 2 or 3 entries from the usual suspects.

As mentioned elsewhere, I had nothing to do with the actual judging, a panel viewed the submissions over a few drinks yesterday at The King’s Arms (home of the E.P. rugby supporters club.)

And here is their verdict …….

In third place and winner of the final Bronze medal of the year we have “and some sky” submitted by Janus.

I have a feeling that the one juror was topping his Famous Grouse up with ice and noticed the icicles in Jay’s composition.

Bronze medal

In second place and winner of the silver medal is LW’s entry “San Sebastian”

When this picture was presented to the panel two of them immediately shouted “I’ve been there!” Now whether this swayed their decision or not I have no idea but it is a great pic and a worthy runner up.

Silver medal and runner up

Which brings us to this months winner and recipient of the final gold medal of 2014, it is of course “Brighton Pier” (or what was left of it) submitted by Boadicea.

A stunning picture which makes you sit up and want to look closer, the yellow ‘effect’ adds to the drama of what has befallen a once loved landmark.

December gold medal.

So there you have it, one of the better challenges (in my opinion) helped I suppose by the ability to interpret the theme in many different ways.

So, it’s congratulations to Boadicea and I look forward to 2015’s first challenge.

  1. Congrats to Boadicea. I have been very busy the last months, but promise to try harder with the Chariot in 2015. Happy New Year everyone 🙂

  2. Many thanks!

    The photo was taken from my mother’s balcony, the ‘yellow’ effect was just the sunset – and if you look very carefully, the surviving pier is in the background behind the now defunct and decaying construction, which Brighton Council (in its wisdom!) has declared a ‘listed building’. It rots away a little more each year!

    I shall go away and think of a suitable composition for the next competition. 🙂

  3. Boa, when I were a lad we had to write ‘compositions’ for English lessons. Later they changed to essays and compositions were only produced by composers. 😊
