Agreed. Bring it on...

A perfect example of 'it's NOT the camera'!!!!!!

Never mind the camera she used, as soon as I saw the shot a few weeks ago I thought it was the quality shot of the bunch.

Its also amazing how much they enlarged it, I also thought it was a winner as soon as I saw it on a previous programme.

I agree the Sheep is a fantastic shot and a well deserved winner. The Dragonfly was a top shot too, so two worthy winners Smile

Thanks for the positive comments, its much appreciated... I'm still in a state of shock. Yes I took "going home" with a somewhat battered compact camera that I bought over 3 years ago (and yes... in real life, the picture blown up to that size did look a bit pixelated (the magic of TV heh?).

When Countryfile told me I was in the final 12, I thought it was a hoax. I'm a total amateur with no photographic training and I’m not part of any photographic group (till I just signed up to this one). In fact I wasn’t aware that photography was “one of my passions” until I read it on the BBC site just now!

I only sent my picture in to the competition after strong cajoling from a friend. I’m chuffed to bits that an image of a few sheep is good enough to be used and I hope the calendar raises plenty of money for “Children in Need”.

Well all I can say is it's worthy winner and was my favourite by a long way, and if it means anything I would be extremely happy to have it in my portfolio. Very well done indeed.

Oh, and how about uploading it to you portfolio so we can all have a good look.Smile

I must say, it was the one that stood out for meTongue

I thought the overall selections were nowhere up to the standard of last years.
That is no reflection on the those that took them either.
Perhaps, the "judges" were looking for summat different.
