And the Winner is.....

Congratulations to Gary Parker for his winning image entitled "croc and rock". Gary's image showed an excellent creative approach with good technical ability. Looking at the images below you will see that we didn't exactly have an easy job, but Gary's image is the one that stood out for us. He wins a photo workshop for two at Mashatu Game Reserve.



Thank you to all that entered our competition, we really enjoyed viewing all the images that came in. You made our life very difficult in the office. We blacked out the windows, brewed some strong coffee and ploughed tirelessly through all your images. In the end we almost resorted to paper, scissors, rock, but one of our triumvirate wavered, and Gary's image was declared the winner- a 2:1 vote. It was close a close call, but we are all still talking to each other.
Here is our selection of the top 10....
Thanks again to all who entered. We received images from all over the world which was very special to us. From our side the competition and our birthday was a grand success- and I'm glad we could share it with you.
