hats off to all who competed, we live in hope!
Actually Peter, I was thinking that perhaps you would have entered a shot of your dockside/harbour, which I think could have given Rik a run for his money. :D

Thanks Philip, I thought I should give Rik a chance..... My mind works in strange ways (as everyone knows) so I saw an opportunity to include the current lock-down situation, perhaps as cartoonists interpret the world?

And a cracking idea it was too Peter. I was torn between Rik's entry and yours. You were an extremely close second in my eyes.

Thank you Andrew for appreciating my sense of humour. There are two others out there too as I didn't vote for myself!

Congratulations Rik - a worthy winner. It is encouraging to try and aspire to your level of expertise, both in terms of modelling and photography.

Well, thanks to everyone who voted for my piccie. I thought there were several others which were equally as good and I'm sure there may have been some forumites out there who could have come up with photos to beat mine.

Next quarter's theme ...... Hmmm .... How about "Railway idyll"

Something which sums up what is perfect about a railway scene, for you. It could feature trains, or locos or rolling stock or not, such as a quiet scene at a station, wayside half or just some track meandering through the garden.

I'm sure most of us have a shot tucked away which sums up that theme....
