You folks have given the judges a really hard time as always! So - after much debate and deliberation - this is what you've been waiting for ::::

1st Place (winning a tripod donated by Billyray) Samthursby - We found this a brilliant image. You managed to get it right 'in camera' rather then resort to PS. You and your friends must have worked hard for this photo and it shows! We love the composition - all three are at the apex of their jumps with the boys on the skateboards throwing their opposite arms up. Brilliant!

2nd Place (winning a tripod donated by zarozinia) WilliamRoar - This really does fit the theme with three bikers and three cones. We really like the effect you've given it.

3rd place (winning an EPZ neoprene camera strap donated by sut68) Xander - You have caught these sausages beautifully. They are all in focus and look so succulent!

4th place (winning a copy of Photo Lifeguard donated by Paul Morgan) Kathersmith - A beautifully simple shot, but so brilliantly sharp and well presented.

5th place ( also winning a copy of Photo Lifeguard donated by Paul Morgan) Kieranmccay - Well thought out and a good depth of field. We like the lighting too.

6th place (winning 3 months e2 membership donated by EPZ) Olipackwood - You have caught these three little flowers brilliantly! Super depth of field and the colours are wonderful.

7th place (also winning 3 months e2 membership donated by EPZ) Zhansulu - a really powerful image and certainly a different "take" when interpreting the theme.

Special mentions are also given to:-

AsherBerney - We do wonder how long it took you to line up those three dogs! Our first black and white entry and we really like the composition. The fact you've managed to capture their expressions all similar and they are all looking at the camera is just super!

Marcodevalle - A lovely triptych - the expressions on the dog's face really made us smile.

Jamestheboy - Another great interpretation using 3D images. So much work has gone into this image - it makes a brilliant eye catching picture. We really like the way that 'film' is rippling off to the right - it has been so well done it is believable!

Emmeline - Three well thought out poses to fit her interpretation of the theme, the use of B&W works well too. Lovely lighting, even though they are in the depths of their hoods.

Here is what the Judges thought of the other entries

Lucy - Chickens. A gorgeous entry. The glossy plumage on the cockerel is beautiful and the way the young hens are following and looking so adoringly at him is really funny! Well seen and caught!

Josh - Three Cygnets. Such a sweet capture, they really do look cute and fluffy. Just a little over exposed, but a difficult capture to shot with pale cygnets against dark water.

Emilie - Three Pink Roses. We really like the slightly diagonal composition, with the largest rose in the top corner, going down to the slightly smaller roses. Well thought out and captured. Perhaps a different background may have looked better, something plainer that doesn't distract from the flowers.

Connor - Ice Skater. The colours are very striking in this image. We like the pose and how it fitted with the theme - it may have been an improvement by having the number showing, but as it's most likely on the back of the shirt, it would be hard to get it and the action in the same shot.

Aryan - 3 Deer. You were so lucky to get to see three deer at the same time and you've caught them brilliantly. We like the way their 'necklaces' match their 'ear-rings'! A lovely entry.

Nicholas - Milk In The Fridge Door. A well seen image (who would have thought to look in the fridge for '3')! That's a lot of milk! You've caught the different whites brilliantly.

Luke - Whistling Ducks. Again, it must have been so difficult to capture three at once! We really like the way they are stood in a semi-circle watching you!

Jonah - 3 cygnets Well caught. We really like the way they are all sat and looking in the same direction.

Maddy - Turbine We like the simplicity of this image - the colours and elegance make it a wonderful eye catching image.

Oliver - Lady Triptych A wonderfully crisp black and white image. We like the thought of having past, present and future - well thought out.

Martyna - Playing Cards Fills the theme well - three cards. The focus on the cards is good - well caught.

Ceri - Marbles It must have taken ages to capture all the moving marbles and leave just 3 dark ones still. A well thought out image with good depth of field.

Rosy - Sheep In Field You were very lucky to find three sheep off on their own - well seen. We like the way you've focused through the hedge and caught them brilliantly.

James - Roof/chimneys Brilliantly seen, not enough people think to look up and at buildings! There are so many 3's to choose from in this image, well done James.
