Rob - Many thanks for for awarding my cooker burner the wining place.

I thought it was a great subject and was a little disappointed by the low number of entries. However the submitted entries were all very good and must have given Rob a challenge. I particularly liked JudithAnn's portrait shot. Not only do I think it was brilliantly well done but I also felt it was a fantastic take on the subject. I also thought aliengrove's cloud shot was terrific I can only dream of achieving results like these.

Congratulations to everyone and thanks to Rob for the well thought out comments. I thought it was an excellent collection of images and anyone of them could have won.

I will post a new subject up shortly.

Congratulations to Glyn, Judith and Jon for well deserved places!

Very well judged Rob - I agree with nearly everything you say there (the exception is the joint third place, technically with three entries in the First & second places the next place is forth)
Your right about the water vapour it's caused by a steam leak (wasted energy).

I wasn't satisfied with my entry, as a quick lunchtime snapshot & no options for post processing there was no way I could compete with those already posted - but working in the energy industry, I thought I ought to make sure I gave you something.

I did think that if I set fire to the refinery it would make it a bit more dramatic & show more energy, but decided that it wasn't worth the consequences.

The down side to all this is it's introduced me to Flickr - causing more than a few hours to be spent...

We had Glyn down for the winner too - excellent shot and as you say lovely colours synonymous with the power and energy of gas.

The tripod did eventually get set up just as it all quietened down - !!

Loved JudithAnn`s young man with all the vibrant energy and confidence of youth - brilliant.

Thanks for the comp and the judging - will try harder next time !

And well done Judith Ann too of course! Forgot to mention my fellow second-placer! I think it should have been the outright second place shot.

Sorry I didn't support this competition Rob it was an excellent subject and one I would normally have enjoyed entering. But time has been hectic these last couple of weeks. Low entries but super quality so congrats to all the people who entered and especially to Glyn for a great winner and to Aliengrove and JudithAnn.
