Well done Simon/springtide,
very nice shot - you got a vote from me (though I have to admit I put you second for obvious reasons!!!)

And thank you Ascot for picking mine for the final - getting into a final in this sort of field made me feel like a winner by itself.
Thanks also to anyone who voted for me, third is fantastic!

Thanks again everybody who voted.

And thanks for everybody who posted.  One of the nice things about these comps is you get to view some great photos and steal other people's ideas see new ideas and learn new techniques :)
