You'd have to really like one to pay to vote.

My wife who is not a photographer doesn't think much of them and I am not that impressed this year either.

Brian_scott beat me to it! Didn't recognise any of the names as ePz members though. But can somebody please tell me what Jo Brand adds to the proceedings? She seems to do nothing more than make so called 'funny' comments. Another 'famous name' photographer as a judge may have helped.

Chris Packham made some relevant comments I thought i.e the dead poppy in the foreground of one of the shots.

Overall I agree with Eastlands.

I like a few of them, particularly the badging trotting down the country lane. Just a shame there are no accompanying words from the photographer.

A couple of nice shots (e.g. Barn Owl and Badger) but the 12 together don't really light my fire I'm afraid!

Jo Brand is a pointless addition to the judging panel. The BBC really needs to sort the judging out for this comp next year.

The prize money isn't great either, considering the size and coverage the competition gets.

Jo has been a judge for many years, so is not an addition and certainly not pointless.

I wasn't impressed overall. I liked the waves and the tern the most.

Ok then, she's been a pointless judge for many years Smile

Quite disapointed with final 12 this year, although I'm glad to see I voted for Chris Miles's pic on here. Smile
Didn't see the point of the muscles at all!
I liked that rather lovely old-fashioned landscape that didn't get picked because it didn't have a cow or something in it. Nevertheless, it was beautiful.

A mixed bunch, certainly. What disappointed me was that so few reflect the theme "Walk on the Wild Side".

Well, you could either be very strict about it, in which case hardly any would fit, or open it up to make it basically cover anything "wild", which is what they seem to have done..... Perhaps they didn't get enough?

I don't want to get into the politics of the choices made for the final 12. However, I would like to congratulate Chris Miles in getting one of his images chosen, well done mucker!
