Chris - you might want to do another. I suspect this pic wasn't taken this evening and the rules aren't as precise as I'm sure they used to be

The picture needs to be taken and processed between 8pm and 9pm tonight.

Just some comments:

Monday Night Challenge Results

ChrisPritchard – Great shot would be good, but sadly not applicable due to misunderstanding of the rules. Unlucky but a great shot nevertheless.

JoshReptiles – Also a nice shot but once again was not taken in the hour so sorry but its disallowed on this occasion.

Urdygurdy – I liked the depth of field to show the little leaflets – a very clever idea. I feel that however it might have been nice to see the wording on it, a bit clearer.

Chelle70 – I liked the lighting on the lights, and when you take them up-close it really does show what amazing patterns they can form! However, both are a tad soft and the first one has a smudge sadly on it – however, they are great shots from a different perspective. The one at Wimbledon was also an interesting take.

F8 – I liked the thought on this one and the background is good. Once again a nice object to photograph so well done, I like the crop also I think on this occasion the tightness of it is good.

Cattyal – the lighting on the first car, the Jaguar E-Type is lovely, with a great background and fantastic shadows really showing me the beauty of the car – would look great for a company and is great for a model (I suspect….).

Lacoupe – Nice car… I like the detail, focussing is very good but the background is a bit busy… Still a lovely shot clearly fitting into the theme well.

Xiaoli – My favourite is No.1 so lets talk about that one. It is very clever, fits the theme well and is nicely processed to create a desiring effect. Maybe the crop on the top though was a bit too tight…

Goggz – Wonderful DOF here, really really nicely done. I think however it is a bit grainy but a great interpretation of the theme anyway, I was hoping somebody would put something related to photography up Wink

Bazza21 – Very nice – clearly a little model but still well photographed in what appears to be excellent light. There is some lovely detail, but perhaps taking from a different angle would get rid of the distracting grey section on the far right.

Rpba18204 – Again a nice scene, fits the theme well and detail is good. The crop is nice as it has some space to “move into” but I feel that the horizon line and the cart is a bit wonky – so that being corrected would help.

Stuart463 – Nice DOF and reflection, colours also quite good. I think however that the key point of this image, the front of the truck is out of focus, thus meaning one has to focus in the middle, which I don’t feel is the correct area. Perhaps a closer focus would have improved the image. Still – well done.
Cattyal – Once again, great lighting and interpretation of the theme.

Slimey – well done, don’t quite know how the boot stayed up like that…… Anyway good interpretation, background a bit busy though. Also I think the crop is a tad too tight on both sides.

StuartFawcett – Nicely thought out a grand idea – I like the background here and the detail is good. Mono works well but a bit more space on the right hand side may have helped.

Lurksalot – both pictures very good – lovely colour and detail. The second pic is a bit grainy and doesn’t fit the theme, but the first one is good.

UBOAT – Goodness Connor, was expecting one of your aircrafts! Anyway, great shot nicely done – however I think it’s a bit over-saturated and the front is a bit too dark. However the lighting is super to well done.

Cirrusminor – nice composition, it’s a tad dark but I really like the idea and I think it fits the theme well. Given me an idea for a future theme too if I ever get the chance again… (unlikely).

Eviscera – of course it counts if you think it does – and I think it does… I think it is fantastically processed with jaw dropping colours and lighting.

Montechoro – fantastic depth of field on this one, nice lighting as well – a very “luxurious” feel to the picture – would look good as a poster I think.

Kinell – Clever idea, and I like the detail but I think a closer crop would have shown just that little bit more…

HouseMartin – It is a good idea with nice colours, but I feel it is a bit too bright with many highlights. Apart from that the lighting is good.

JoshReptiles – Very nice colours and the focussing is spot on – but I think that a bit more space on either side of the car would have helped the composition.

Blimey - thank you Jonah - that was definitely a surprise Smile

Right - time to start thinking about next week! I'm sure you'll survive not joining in - I suspect skiing is a bit more entertaining Smile
