You beat me to it, Ben.

We're still experimenting with the layout - there is no way of linking to the photographer's gallery from the description or title, so a link in a comment box is what we've fallen back on.

There will be an explanatory news article later today.

Great to see the Golden Gallery up and running, Three very good images, but hey wasn't the words no clichés mentioned.

As good as the picture Little Red Hoodie is, Red Anoraks (sometimes red umbrellas)are the cliché of all clichés, followed by B/W images with a single colour, two for the price of one you might say.

I'd agree with you Patrick, and you will never know just how close it came to being rejected exactly for the reasons you mentioned. However, it is a well executed image and on those merits it got through.
