TOP IMAGE. Chris Monkey House
Brilliant shot. Well exposed and perfect timing. There is so much to see and we must all remember days out like this. The adult is slightly distracting but does add to the story, but I think I would also consider cloning her out.But still a fabulous shot and a worthy winner.
Runners Up. Tillman Animated Bar Conversation & It’s a Text….
Well seen and great composition with a really nice complmentary background to frame it all. Love the way it is the eldest nun that gets the text, and on an old looking phone, although it may have been taken some time ago.

February Theme 2021 Selected by Chris
Top Image Spring King Cups. by Oliver
For me this is the stand out image with so much going for it. It is taken from a low perspective so that you almost feel that you are lying amongst the flowers. The lighting is perfect with the petals and hairs on the flowers being backlit, and to add that final touch the sepals are shown as shadows. It is a feel good image that brings joy to the beholder.

JANUARY AWARDS 2021 Selected by Oliver with thoughtful comments.
Theme. Winner. Who’s Playing Who Colin
It takes me to a time when I played rugby is similar conditions – it was great fun, the camaraderie of the various teams I played for was excellent and made it all the more enjoyable – though I always hated the communal bath afterwards where you came out dirtier than when you went in!! The image is also relevant to now where we are battling against opposition that is difficult to see and control.
Runner Up Dianne Torso
Takes me to all of those ancient sites in Turkey and Greece we have visited and enjoyed on numerous holidays– the treatment is excellent and complimentary. I am also reminded of my younger days when I was fitter and more athletic (I know hard to believe!) happy days.
Top Image. Sheep Colin
Sheep – the riot of colour and multiple faces really puts a smile on my face, the added bonus is having been on farms with our horses all my adult life I can smell and hear them. It also asks – why and what do the colours mean, where are they going?
Runner Up Tillman. Beach Stone Abstract
I am drawn to the textures the image portrays, so many shapes and patterns – it could also be of wood or an ancient cave painting, its a delight to look over the image – would love to see the print. Being a Geologist (by qualification) I can feel the coarseness of the stone and find the image invokes fond memories of field trips to numerous geological sites around the UK when I was studying.
