Judges Writeup





A large number of entries was received for this, so cool is certainly something you can put your artistic talent to. We had everything from icy cool to joe cool and, I hope you agree, a fine shortlist. 

1st Prize: Nikon D5000 plus 18-55 VR kit.
Our first place goes to Keith (katoplato) for his incredible underwater shot of a leaf with a slightly out of focus polar bear. In this shot we liked the balance, the tones and the careful choice of focus on the solitary leaf with the polar bear taking a second but vitally important part in this viewpoint.

2nd - 5th Prize: COOLPIX S8000
Second place goes to alfpics for his frozen rose. Soft tones of the rose hardened by the  frozen ice and an overall cool blue tinge. DaveU's self portrait is a classic like the humour in the squashed nose but the detail is fantastic. Very cool.

Alan takes fourth place for a definitely cool landscape The detail in the large version is superb. Good mood in the sky and reflections are just right to give a almost mirrored effect. You can feel the cold.

Wreck_photography with a highly amusing snow man looking in wrapped in scarf you almost feel sorry for him...a unique take on the theme.

Congratulations everyone. Hope to see you in this month's competition with its animal theme.

You could also win a trip to Australia for 2 check it out here!
