#224 My best image of this summer

According to the BBC today is the first day of autumn and the weather has certainly felt a bit more like autumn on a couple of mornings this week.

Let's see the best image you took this summer.

Closing date two weeks; midnight September 15th.

Re: #220 Speed

Many thanks for you entries. All very good and an interesting mix of interpretations of the theme. The power boats and the motorbike are probably what I had in mind after a visit to Carr mill and I have similar images of both boats. All three give a very good impression of speed which isn't always a...

Re: #219 - Golden Slumbers

Oops, I am a bit late checking the results. I wasn’t expecting that in a class field.

Great pictures (John must be getting old to notice the labels on the bra strap😏😏😏).

This time I will check previous comps to select a subject.

Re: #216 something familiar from an unusual viewpoint

John asked "Would Jack Daniels be acceptable in the whisky glass?" I could tolerate a bourbon in the glass as long as I don't have to drink it. We went to the Manchester Whisky festival and a young friend of ours approached the specialist bourbon producer and asked "I like Jack Daniels and coke, whe...

Re: #216 something familiar from an unusual viewpoint

Quality rather than quantity but I guess that is what happens when the subject gets repeated (oops!). Four good images so I will pick my favourite. I will try not to deduct points for inflicting a Four Seasons jingle but I can't ignore the suggestion that Coca Cola is an acceptable amber fluid to go...

OOPS!!
I have just spotted that I have repeated Chris's theme from September.
That's what happens when you do things when you are busy and distracted.

#216 something familiar from an unusual viewpoint

It is getting hard to think of a subject!
I would like to see something from an unusual viewpoint. That could be a set up “mystery object “ type shot or a landscape avoiding the cliche shots.
See what you can do and have fun.

Closing date 16th March (nearly spring).

Re: #216 Peace

Confession time.
Those rich autumn hues were taken in June and are green in the original. I was playing with Color Effex in the Nik software and I found this effect called “indian summer” which turned it autumnal. I masked out the fisherman so he stood out.
