Congratulations, a great picture to win the competition. Beautiful colours and an almost abstract feel.

Congratulations on winning.

You did everything just fine when you started the new salon. Interesting topic too! I'd better get my thinking cap on for this one!

I've 'stickied' it at the top of the forum.

Well that's very generous of you; thanks

Stephen, Andrew and myself have won the salons a number of times between us and although it's very flattering when it happens, it's also obvious that there are plenty of folk here with sufficient natural talent to beat us to the prizes. And it isn't as though we're not trying to beat them, either...

People have expressed concern in the past that it's harder to acheive success in the salon without professional equipment or experience, but the evidence shows that anyone with a camera and a strong eye for composition can produce winning images, and that's a great thing. Hopefully the successes of our less experienced (but no less talented) members will inspire more people to take part in future salons.

I have to agree with Bearface 100%. As Jay said his winning photo was taken with a HPr717 which is a p/s camera. He also has a dslr but at the end of the day its not what you have but more how you use it. If you saw the view of the pond with the castle behind it on a normal day you would think nothing of it. But he came back at night and got the view that you now see.

Absolutely! It's fair to say that one could quibble about some of the technical quality aspects of the winning picture, but what we should (and Jocelyn did) focus on is the visual impact of the overall picture. From that point of view, it's a winner!
