Sorry but my english is not good enough so this will be just a ranking.
No 1 and winner is Bottles o windowsill by JAK
No 2 From the bottles point of view by davidwoshere
No 3 Before the bottlebank run by Nigel K
No 4 One green bottle byjohnriley
No 5 After the bottlebank run bydrofmit
No 6 Barbera dīAsti by smudge
The others Iīm not able to rank. And, sorry, in my opinion, a bottle is a bottle and a can is a can. Sorry that I marked it as a winner and then I was not able to change.
Happy New Year anyway!

Thanks Lars, and Happy New Year... congratulations to John... thought it would be between that and Before by Nigel... the first three are goodly!!
Having taken some photos of broken bottles inside a bottlebank... Nigel's picture needed a response.
Happy New Year every one... may the shutter click just right, the exposures be just so.... and the buffer not overflow in 2019!!
Never be afraid to talk about your techniques...

Thank you Larseric for the competition and judging - well done to you! Also to davidwozhere and NigelK who join me on the podium, whose both shots would be worthy as winners too. Well done to the rest for taking part I'm guessing its the time of year where people have other things on their mind that caused so few to participate.
I'm sure I've seen some of those images before where the theme was similar, as indeed mine was! However it isn't the same shot that I entered before and I cropped this one based on the comment made regarding the other one. Entering the competitions does give one valuable feedback to take or ignore as one wishes.
So now I have to come up with a theme for this week's competition... and a monthly one too. Ah well! My aim to come second backfired spectacularly in both!

Doesn't happen often John. Congratulations on your double and to Nigel for his painstakingly lined up and lit collection of bottles. I hope everyone enjoyed emptying a few of them over the holiday. Thank you too Larseric for a great contest and for my 2nd placing.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
