Some excellent photos so far. Keep them coming, 5 days left to enter.

A few housekeeping notes though:

Carol and Keith Harpers photos are eligible... they are time travellers :lol:

Can everyone remember to keep comments to this page, so if you forget to post the date or location then just pop it on this thread and I will spot it, if I don't see it, I'll PM you anyway. This is to keep photos together to make it easier for voting.

Blueyed - Can you PM your email address for your winning certificate please. Nothing special, but it says Joint-Winner on it :lol:

And one last reminder
, everyone who has entered must cast their Top 3 votes otherwise they will be hit with a 10 point deduction. If you will be away when voting will be happening, please PM me your votes or leave it on this thread.

Thank you and heres to another great years worth of photos :thumbup:

What's everyone's thoughts on a 10pt deduction if you enter and don't vote? I am happy to scrap it if its unpopular.

I think its reasonable enough as it helps to ensure Maximum number of votes are cast. Its effectively the same as saying if you enter a pic and don't vote your pic is ineligible.
