So this is my first time choosing a topic and I have to say it is harder than I thought to pick something suitable. However the challenge for this week is.....

"under lock and key".

Good luck everyone.....


The Rules are:

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. The challenge runs from 8pm on the Sunday and runs until 8pm the following Sunday.
4. Only one upload per member.
5. Please feel free to comment on the entries once judging is complete.
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. Have fun

OK. Well I make it 8 O'Clock and so thank you for all of the entries. I will retreat into my small dark judging cell and shall not return until I have a winner..

Well thank you all for giving me a really hard job. there were some excellent, well crafted entries which made the task of judging even harder.

"key to the heart?" - I like the way that the shape of the key handle makes a connection to the main subject.

I love the use of emotive lighting on both the handcuffs and the champagne bottle. and I think that the use of colour on both the corned beef and "and thrown away the key" really make the subject stand out.

However there can be only one winner and I think that for me it is the box. The isolation of the lock and the texture of both the brass and the wood work well together while having the lid slightly ajar creates a slight sense of mystery as to its contents.

Well done petebfrance. looking forward to getting my teeth into another challenge
