Oh Help!!

Poll closed, and I see my"This Old Tree", "Out In The Mist" by Beau Reflets and "The Glade" by Kerbside tying for first place.

First off, thank you to everyone who voted for mine. I really didn't expect it to get anywhere. And congratulations to the joint winners.

Secondly, I guess I win by being first to post. However, I'm very sorry indeed, but I'm afraid I'm just not in a position to set up or administer a challenge for the next couple of weeks. So I hope that as second to post, Andy will accept the winner's duties this time. (If it helps, that was the one I voted for.)

Sorry again, Simon

Sorry again, Simon

No worries I was praying someone else would win  ;) but yes I will do the necessary.

Thank you to those who voted for my effort  :tup: :beer:

Congratulations to the three deadheaters!

I'm intrigued by the lighting in Andy's image, it got my vote, it had a real sense of creativity and mystery. Where and how was this taken? Looks very middle eastern to me. Almost the sort of picture you see on a box of dates.

So, not a chocolate, but a date box picture!

It grabbed me too, the minute I saw it; very North African, edge of desert type shot. Got my vote as well.

Cheers for the votes. I will upload another Cool lit version (which is closer to the light at the time)  The tree grows nearby having been recently dug in on a new development plot, hence the landscape effect with the mist masking the wood of oak and fir beyond. The shot was then simply warmed to give the sense of a hotter locality.

Thanks Andy. The things you can do these days! Take 'hot' holiday shots, on a misty and probably cool day.
Mist is very good at hiding ugly stuff, or maybe I should say distracting stuff.

Well done Simon, Andy and Jeff. Sorry I'm a bit late. Nice entries just lacked in numbers. Thanks to whoever voted for me, much appreciated. I really liked my photo this time, might actually print one and frame it which I never do!
