    I've not been here for a while and I've uploaded this week, but just realised I took the image a couple of weeks ago so maybe no good?

    Aahh that's a shame Lyn.

    The shots have to be taken after the theme is announced, which was 18th April. Sorry I'll not be able to include it in the judging..........it's a great shot though.

    Hope you get another chance to re-take the shot before 25th, or maybe you'll spot another great subject in time to upload.

    Take Care

    Just over 2 hours to go. Still time to upload a shot for the "Something Old" challenge. Closing time is 8 pm this evening - (apologies for previous forum post on 23rd saying that closing time was 6 pm - this was incorrrect - deadline is definitely 8 pm - I had a "Senior Moment")!!

    Well, it’s that time of the week again……………..I enjoy hosting challenges, but for me this is the part I don’t like at all – the judging!

    I’ve enjoyed watching your shots coming in all week – and,………..Respect, to all of you for these quality images.

    On choosing my winner I was undecided between two images, so I’ve gone with the one which evoked the most emotional response in me – which is what I believe photography is all about……so my winner this week is……………….

    “Old Charlie” by Bugdog

    Phil, I love this shot. “Old Charlie’s” face is alive, the sparkle in his eyes, the smile on his face. The composition is great and the timing, and I like the way that you can just faintly see the other runners in the background. The b & w tones are wonderful. Was this at the beginning of the Marathon? ……”Old Charlie” is still smiling – and this guy’s no spring chicken!

    Old Charlie was closely followed by “Nettar” by dwilkin. Darren this shot is beautiful and sharp, and an excellent subject. I love the way you process b & w images.

    Thanks to everyone else who uploaded, these are great images which I've enjoyed.

    Cheers

    Elaine

    Thanks for hosting this week Elaine and well done to Phil for winning.

    You had a good varied selection to judge this week for which I don't envy you one little bit!

    Well done Phil and Darren. The photo of Old Charlie reminds me of my younger days.
    Excellent challenge, Elaine. I enjoyed seeing all the different subjects your topic elicited: thank you for hosting the challenge.

    I can't take all the credit for the sharpness of my shot - some of that goes to the previous owner of the camera. It's 65 years old, and looks like it came out of the box just last week!

    Thanks for the great comments.
    Old Charlie was coming up to the finish and still like you say a sparkle in his eye

    Wow - still looking good, and smiling at the finish line - he's obviously a lot fitter than me!

    Looking forward to seeing your topic for the coming week's challenge Phil.

    I've sent you a PM.

    Cheers
