If this doesn't get a whole clutch of awards I'll eat my hat (which in no way resembles those featured here). Hugely creative, superbly executed - an absolute dream of an image, Kathy.

looks very good to me...I think it will get a bit lost in the gallery though as you cant see much from the thumbnail.

Wow Thanks! That's made my day Smile This was supposed to be just testing the water for an idea I had, but maybe I don't need to do any more shots... I'm sure Vince & the scarecrow will be pleased to hear that Smile

And I was so looking forward to seeing Ian eat his hat...

Many thanks to all of you for your comments Smile

Thank you again Smile So many awards - I'd better bake Ian a hat-shaped cake!

Phil - I'm not sure about this for the AP comp... I rather like it, but I doubt they will. Did a re-shoot last night, but didn't get anything better really & the old scarecrow is looking a bit worse for wear now. Might re-process this and try to make a couple of the "crows" a little less like gulls! Smile

Thanks again folks, your comments are much appreciated.

I quite like it - not too dark at all, enough to make the eye fill in the details. Good exposure on the fire.
This one would probably show up much better on a totally black background with no white border.
Also, I think the colour looks perfect as is.

ETA: just noticed the award Smile congrats.
