Here's the thread you can put any comments in if you feel the need. I found it quite tricky thinking of a subject, going through topics such as 'Dark' and 'Cross', before settling on 'Glass', so I hope you enjoy it!

Is the glass, 'half full', for you, or 'half empty' ?

Quite a tricky subject I have decided, particularly when the lighting outside is flat, dark grey

Yes, I wanted to add a new image, and the only way I could do that was to delete it. Is that not allowed?

I am afraid that one of the few 'rules' for the competition is that entries should not be altered or substituted.

Perhaps you could slip your original entry back in and submit your VW version under the Your Photos section for comment.

Obviously the competition is intended to be as light hearted as possible, but it was felt that if people changed their entries, it might be because thay had been influenced by other submissions.

No I just thought the VW was better...... I will change it back.

Hyram is correct with the reasoning. The idea is we have one shot at submitting an entry and then we sit, wait and watch...
Best regards, John

Now, did you pick David as the winner as he promised to get the drinks in ?

My entry was scupered when I didn't make it back home by midnight due to a cancelled train. Oh well, having seen the other entries, and the winner, I doubt it would have made a difference to the result.

I was looking back at some of the previous competitions and wondered where competitions prior to No 58 were

When we start a new competition, are the others falling off the end?
