Having real trouble with this. Lots of ideas, none of which have worked to my satisfaction so far.

Anytime Smile I've not quite got as far as the glass yet- I've been distracted by cleaning the remaining gunk from a bird skull - not sure what it was - crow I think...... Good job I've a box of latex gloves Smile

Not many entries this week, maybe we need to try and raise the profile of this challenge. However for those that made the effort the standard is high.

Oldblokeh said earlier in the week he was struggling with this challenge but in the end I think you have done a cracking job. Cattyal maintains her usual high standard and Andy Cundell has interpreted the theme well.

However, today's winner is lumi, a newcomer to the site who's entry is her first upload (at least when I checked her PF). Well done Sarah and over to you for next weeks challenge (if you do need any help/guidance I'm sure one or all of us would be willing to assist)

Sincere thanks to all that entered - hopefully will see you all next week (now that I can enter again)

Best wishes to you all, Stuart

Bah humbug! Beaten by my better half on her first attempt! Thanks for setting the theme and doing the judging Stuart. Sarah will post the new challenge in a while. In the meantime, I've just uploaded what was my backup. I though it was a bit too abstarct, but interesting nonetheless.

Hello everyone, beginners luck this week! Sorry for the delay on setting a new challenge, I had to do the ironing to make it up to oldblokeh for winning.
