A difficult competition to judge this week and a good variety of images. Thank you to everyone who entered.

It’s always difficult to pick a winner but one clearly stood out for me. Congratulations to Stephen for ‘Lighting up’ which I felt was superbly seen and handled.

———————————————————
Turning on the lights

Rodney has captured a very busy and colourful street scene here full of action. Slight cropping has enhanced the image further.

Clap for the NHS

John captured this moment well as the expressions on the couples faces show. A very happy image in difficult times nicely framed.

You spoil that dog

Stan has seen the subject well and gone for a tight shot showing the couple chatting and eating the takeaway. They seem oblivious to the look on the dogs face which adds humour. Nice!

Parisian Street life

Another busy street scene with plenty going on. I think Paul could have added a little more impact by cropping the top and bottom frames tighter. This I felt added more impact to the image.

Life in the St. Market St. Lucia.

Part of a market and one stall where Vic has caught the shoppers eying up a bargain or two. Plenty of movement gives some impact and adds to the scene

The Sun has got his hat on and the gas man's on his way

An interesting image with colours and composition that work well. It has a quality feel which I liked. Nice one David.

Manchester Streetlife

A nicely seen image framed tightly which adds impact. Well spotted and handled by John

The Don’t Doers

A more artistic interpretation of this weeks theme. Nigel has chosen to pick out a small part of a very common object we see almost daily. It has humour and impact.

Rain dancing with webs around a streetlight

Colin has chosen a very unusual ‘arty’ interpretation of the theme and produced an image with lots of impact. The more I looked at this the more I saw! Great colours.

Streetlife?

A moment in time has been captured well here. The feeling of space between the neighbours is strong. This is helped by careful cropping. Unfortunately a sign of our times. Well spotted by Corkyboy.

Lighting up

A superb image perfectly timed and treated by Stephen. The choice of monochrome only helps improve the impact of this image.

World Cup Street Life

A strong image captured by Glyn showing another aspect of our streets decorated for an event. Tight framing and nice colours boost the scene.

Holiday crowd

Kevin has chosen to show a part of Padstow jam packed with tourists in what is a very busy street. The framing and summer colours both add to the atmosphere.

Reckless youth

An interesting shot well captured by Noel. I liked the position of the skateboarder and the two bystanders watching him seemingly unaware of the traffic. For me the framing worked and set a scene well.

When we mingled

Attention has been is drawn to one member of the band by careful choice of shutter/aperture. Your eyes then explore the frame picking out the other musicians. Flan captured the moment well.

Shoeless on the steps

Slightly unusual in that the upper body is missing! However, I thought the image worked with the person clearly isolated in what looked like cold and harsh surroundings. Alan has handled the exposure well and put a lot of thought into the composition.
