Not being tied down to a specific subject may encourage CC members to enter the competition. Let's have sight of your personal style, your take on your favourite genre. All will be winners, but one will BEST IN SHOW.  :tup:

Love the idea, but it may make it even more difficult to make up my mind! If I manage to get some decent shots this week, that is. The past week was rather dismal.

Brilliant idea Alan.

Perhaps when the poll is set there should be more than one vote available -  :-\   :tup:

Steady on Andy, I've yet to fathom out how to do the poll  ??? let alone allow more than one vote. Anyway it's THE BEST IN SHOW.  :tup:

Hi Alex,

You've got your entry in good and early. Please don't misunderstand this as I don't mean to criticise it in any way. However, you've got till Sunday night to take another. Are you sure you're not going to take a better one - even by accident - before then?

(I spent all last night trying to shoot a specific photo for this comp and failed dismally. But I might get another chance later in the week. If not, come Sunday I'll try to choose between photos taken for other reasons.)

Thanks Simon - I figured I'd enter this one now so I don't forget, then I can always swap it if I take something better!

I'm not planning on taking any more pictures this week after I've redone today's efforts. But, as you say Simon, we can always change our minds if we suddenly get an unexpected stunner.

I've got three candidates already, and I haven't finished taking photographs yet.

What to go for? The three I've so far set aside fall in the categories of cute, humour and 'reality.' They're all street scenes. I tend to take photographs 'on the hoof' and hardly ever set something up.

Had a dash over the local Common this afternoon, but at first glance the results are not quite what I hoped. Haven't seen them on screen yet, so that's what I am going to do now.

It will be difficult to choose the ultimate winner, as there will be (I hope) many different types/styles and genres.

Better get back to work now.
