1st place
Torquay Pier by coram9

LakeMichigan: Congratulations on winning the contest.
Excellent entry.

J_E_F: Well done on a first place. Nice perspective with the top line of the benches similar to the shoreline in the distance and post editing to bring out the clouds.

However, I didn't 'warm' to this one, perhaps because of clinical whiteness of the line of benches and absence of anything that hints at the 'fun' (beach ball, umbrella) of a sea-side pier location. Just a personal thing and not meant to take away from a deserved placing.

tanimara: Congratulations, Lyn. Love the shot!

corngrowth: Not suitable for an outdoors nap, but anyhow a bench with character.

If this will be your entry: good luck in the contest, Lyn.

Regards, Cornelius.

Bench by rvdb

Eubeen: A fine location for the bench. Looks like there is plenty of legroom and shade provided by the interesting looking tree. The focus looks a little soft in the scene. Best of luck in the contest.

LakeMichigan: Beautiful, peaceful shot and a great entry for the contest.
I really like the lighting you caught on this .
Colors and details are great as well.
Very inviting image. Well done and good luck.

Waiting by casechaser

Eubeen: A great illustration and sketch work, John. The spectral man adds some nice raw emotion to the scene. Best of luck in the contest.

icedancer: Looks like a ghost waiting for his love one to pass over. Gorgeous piece of work and love the colours.
