Here it is guys, the scorecard so far!

Early days yet but so far we have secretatlantis, C-Max and MrsHjort holding the top 3 places, well done!
Look closely and a big mover this month is essjaynz climbing from the basement in January way up to 4th place average, wow congrats!
With another 10 months to play anything is possible, get working on those March entries people :)

Here's the latest scores!

Another great set of photos, well done to all. Some big achievements in the March contest. Defyaugury takes Gold with a fantastic snowy scene, GwenBriar takes the Bronze with a wonderful image, wow! MrsHjort is right in there with Silver, yet another top three placing!

The scoring is so narrow that despite the great individual achievements no big change appears in the overall standings. The entrants occupying the top, middle and bottom three places are still the same, everybody just shuffles around a little!

Less than one whole point difference, so It's still anybody's contest ... bring on the April entries! :)

The April scores are in folks :)

Wow, another awesome shot from Defyaugury claims contest Gold and he climbs into second place! MrsHjort takes contest Silver but achieves top chart position on average scores, well done!

GwenBriar strikes contest Bronze yet again, nice one :cheers:

Slight change in order for the remaining players and the battle for the coveted basement place still rages on. Although IcyAll and mickey2bagz draw level in contest scores, Icy grabs the honor again :flag:

The merry month of May is now with us and is sure to bring yet another set of excellent entries!! :)

The latest results are in with some cool scoring. Essjaynz takes the number one spot with a fantastic shot showing the 'Shades of Green' ... congrats! Icy is up there in second place with a lovely 'Redwood' pic and Gwen has once again grabbed the Bronze with a beautiful image of 'May Fl ... oops...Showers' - great title!

All the other entries are well up to competition standard, apart from that dreadful picture of a bull, but when all the dust settles the overall placings remain almost the same. MrsHjort stays at the top of the tree, excellent stuff, Icy vacates the basement and mickey2bagz takes his slot. As Piet didn't enter this month his average score drops but this in no way represents the usual high quality of his work.

June will bring another set of fantabulous pics, go to it guys! :)

Mick asked me to fill in for him this month as he is away snapping pictures elsewhere, so here goes!

Drumroll!

We have two Golds and two Bronzes this month.

Joining me at the top spot was GwenBriar with an absolutely stunning shot of the sun. I've never seen anything quite like it - all those gorgeous colors and the moody clouds makes it look like something out of this world. Wow! Congrats! :clap:

The thirds sports were taken by two other lovely ladies.

secretatlantis wowed us with her beautiful view and a wonderful foreground interest that both mirrors the background through its colors and sets itself apart from it through its textures. A wonderful addition that really makes the scene pop!

essjaynz made excellent use of light and color with her beautiful autumn leaves. The soft background contrasts them in a beautiful way making them look all fiery and warm. What a lovely find made even more pretty through her skills!

The standings are just about the same, except a switch between GwenBriar and essjaynz, but we're only half way there folks and much can happen yet! So let's grab those cameras, lenses and what not and shoot a lovely July picture :D
To boldly arrrrr where no pirate has steered before :captain:

Another great set of images in the July contest, congrats to all entrants. Special congrats of course to our July joint Gold winners MrsHjort and C-Max, with the Bronze going to secretatlantis. Pietopper returns with a bang taking 4th place with his July Orchid.

Piet missed a couple of months due to a sudden illness. That's just plain unfair, so our resident numbers expert MrsHjort has kindly adjusted the formula used to calculate the contest averages. Piet's missing scores (in blue) will be calculated based on his ongoing average and will continue to adjust as the months pass.

The usual shuffle of places in the middle and lower thirds of the listing and there is still less than one whole point difference between roof and basement (which is where I am living at the moment)

Nice work everyone, get working on those August entries!
:)

Wow, some seriously good work coming out now. MrsHjort takes the Gold with ... drum roll ... her greatest average score ever!! :) Well done Natalie. Pietopper and secretatlantis take joint Silver trophies, then a sweet pooch in 4th place fron essjaynz followed by joint 5th places for C-Max and defyaugury.
The contest placings change a little, top place still held by MrsHjort, usual shuffle up and down with the rest, but the basement places are still proudly held by IcyAll and mickey2bagz.
Another month over and soon be autumn (here anyway) so get those September entries ready guys! :)
