The theme of colour is easy as colour is all around us, and you delivered. We received well over 1600 entries with the colours of the world well and truly covered. We had so much choice from monotones to rainbow colours and the short-list is bright. We decided that Franken's very graphical image deserved first place, thanks to the bold and minimal colour scheme. The red strips leap out from the otherwise cooler colours of the sky and surrounding architecture. An obviously carefully considered composition that delivers dramatic geometric lines. We love it. And the prize is the equally carefully considered Olympus E-PL3 micro 4.3 system camera...enjoy!
