Did you ever suddenly think DOH!!!!!!!!!

I just remembered a photo which hasn't been used in a competition previously and ( IMHO, based upon comments received) would have been a strong entry.
My tree in the fog.

Doh!!
Getting there! Thanks to you guys

Trees,trees,trees....I think I am the one man out!

Oh well, I will have to leave well enough alone for now, the photo has already been entered. Anyway, right now I am in the Prairies, so trees are scares!!

But there are lots of people(fortnight)

Is this competition going to get a record number of entries? I count 52 entries at the moment and think the current record holder is Hyram with 56 entries for his brilliant windows competition.

I'm glad I'm not judging this one

Almost certain to go past 56 - there are still some regulars who have not entered yet

I don't envy Steve this one, having not set any restrictive criteria.

He probably remembers the competition when it was in the Forum and only attracted Forum users but now it is in the Gallery, with a straightforward subject, the potential number of entries is huge

Many classy entries all the way through

I just feel sorry for Steve who must be sick of the sight of wood by now

I only looked as far back as when the weekly competition migrated into the gallery (at #55) but I suspect that as the gallery seems to have a wider readership than the formus I think it is safe to say that the existing recorder holders are in this set.

On this basis I think the existing record holder is Hyram for #121, Windows with 56 entries followed by Johnny-rino for #81, Flower power, with 49 entries and davidtrout for #113, Textures, with 48 entries.
