Right, weather's lousy, so ideal time to stay indoor with this week's challenge Grin

Two days to go, so get weaving... Wink

Well I've put a shot up this week, although not exactly sure it will qualify or not, but it's kicked off the compo if nothing else Wink

Too windy out there for landscapes etc, so stay indoors and get that superb textiles macro shot. Just 6 hours left!

Well, this was really tough as I like every single entry -- the standard is excellent. After much cogitation I have picked tonight's winner which is Goldfish9's swatch. Although there is no obvious single point of interest in the conventional sense, I find it to be a very strong composition that is very well lit and somehow just appeals to me. Well done Jeanette, and well done to everyone who entered. Every entry was a serious contender and it was a very close call.

I'll post some individual comments as soon as I have some time -- we have visitors at the moment.
