Can you post standings as of last closing? Lots of shared placings should make interesting stats. :D :cheers:

Another great month!

Congratulations Grahamcracker on winning the April contest! Such a beautiful ethereal shot, a lovely use of color and lighting and the soft blur is a great choice. Well done!

secretatlantis, your shot takes me back to my childhood, and that giddy feeling I used to get when I got a banana split with one of those colorful umbrellas. I love the setup, so colorful and playful :)

And MyMindsEye, what an elegant shot! Very nice choice of background to make the subjects pop and the lighting is just right. :clap:

Well done all of you! And the best of luck in the next contest :cheers:

I'm sorry guys, I'm going to have to pull out of this due to work demands.

I genuinely do hate doing so as I really enjoyed getting the bird shots I've gotten, but leaving for work before it gets light and returning after dark every day doesn't leave much room for anything, let alone ornithology :-)

I will be following the rest of the contest eagerly though (and hopefully submitting again when the crunch is over) and wish you all the best of luck.

Last month's golden trophy went to secretatlantis and her super yummy cupcakes. What a wonderful shot! When color, composition and lighting combine to a whole like this the result is amazing! Congrats!

In the second spot Grahamcracker with the gorgeous shot of a white Lilly (my favorite flower :) ). Truly beautiful!

Defyaugury snatched the third spot with his lovely street view. A well chosen point of view in a very pretty area.


Almost half way there now! :cheer:
