It's in the bold type, because it is your vote. :wink:

Ah ha! So much for anonymity

I think it should be down to "closest to the rules"

So the waiting is over and we have a winner! :)

It was a very close running, but Pochetemix scraped through in the end with one vote ahead of Twenny, with Slippers' great inventive photo in the third place. Congratulations chaps! :fest:

I am not sure who will take over from me now. All that is needed is someone dedicated and for them to just do it and set up the competitions. No need to have moderator's powers.

So that's all from me peeps and happy snapping!

Bye bye!
Iva. :)

Congratulations! Thanks for all your hard work Iva! Like I said I'm happy to take it over.

Pochetemix, well done, don't forget to give the photographer some credit for the photo. Especially since their copyright watermark has been removed

Oh yes, I forgot about the removed watermark from Pochetemix's submitted photo. A bit odd that.

The rules were relaxed this time, but that made the competition not a true competition, I suppose.

Must have missed that? What was the discussion?

Congrats to the top 3!

Rusty, you can see the smudge in the bottom right corner of the photo.

But, rules were relaxed so that the owner can be photographed with their car. Like Rob took my picture and I lost, ha ha! :P

I don't mind that someone else took the photos, it was a hard subject to do without relaxing that particular rule.

I find it a bit strange that lengths have been gone to, to remove a watermark

Oh I hadn't spotted that. Even my photoshop skills are better than that ;)

Let's assume positive intent though...it was probably a time stamp, right?

It was the name/business of the photographer that took the shot. It's on Google with label intact.
It is a great pic though!

Of course, the picture was not taken by me. It's difficult to stick to the theme when you have to be in the picture. Okay, we can do a selfie, but that would eliminate the possibility of seeing many good photos.

The photographer of this masterpiece is one friend of mine that is posting in a big spanish forum called forocoches, and he just ask me if I could upload the picture with the blurred signature, cause it's his name and he want to stay anonymous in forums, that's all. I honestly don't understand all that criticism. :oops:

And for the ones who challenge me, my photoshop skilles are so much better than blur a signature that way. But hey, let's continue seeing good pictures in the Photo Competition in good atmosphere like always, but taken by ourselves this time...
