Well I mentioned recently in the forums that this was going to be difficult to judge and too right! The winning image, by Steve Sharp, is excellent, providing you are not Arachnophobia! Highly original and well executed. I love the softness and unusual depth. Second place goes to David Robert House for his wonderful Mediterranean style shot - it looks just like a still from an advert for Olivio! Previous winner and long-standing ePHOTOzine member, Alan Benson, slips in third place with a shot from a recent member's meet at Stonehenge. The silhouette of a person against the huge monument is excellent. Hope you have a model release form signed Alan! 4th place goes to current Picture of the Week winner James Adams for his solitary figure in an underground scene. I like the fact that the figure is the only sharp part and surrounded by loads of movement. Very creative and worthy of its inclusion in the top four! Well done also to all the short listed entries, some only just missed being in the top. Commiserations to all the also-rans, don't let this put you off and better luck next time.
