The sun is out, the sky is blue and I'm sitting in the garden reading a book - I should still have time to enter later on though if I get any bright ideas Smile

I don't have a sprinkler Smile I'm chasing bees at the moment - I've just come in to see if I got any pics in focus Smile

Okay everyone Times Up. This is going to be so difficult - I'll be back soon with a winner.

Well I've gone over and over each shot looking carefully at the attributes of each one................all amazing shots I must say!

I narrowed it down to 3 and looked even more carefully again and again!

This weeks winner is Droplets by Oldblokeh............what an excellent shot Steve. I think this is very clever - I wish I could produce images of this calibre. I love the surprise contained in the shot - when your eye registers the letters reflected in the droplets. I like the clarity and the reflections in the droplets and the colours are gorgeous. Very imaginative, well thought and showing great technical expertise.

My runners up were Jawdborn with Drops on Feather & Cattyal with Drops of Honey - you two gave Steve a run for his money.......and made my job tonight very difficult - it was a very close decision.

Thanks everyone for taking part - I hope you enjoyed the challenge, which I don't think was an easy topic, but you all certainly rose to the challenge.

Well done everyone.

Oh my goodness! Thank you Elaine, but now I have to choose a topic Smile. I have to say that this is probably the first time that I've started out with a clear idea of what I wanted to do and I really enjoyed the challenge of achieving it. As you say, though, some top quality competition as ever. I'll be back with next week's challenge in due course...

Well done Steve - I had thought about trying some water drops but quite frankly was too lazy Smile You did a better job than I'd have managed anyway!

Thanks for hosting this week Elaine
