well deserved cjc181166, beautiful shot.

Not sure I could have picked between that one and RonM's  would have given me sleepless nights.  Congratulations to everyone else, getting tougher each month.

Congratulation cjc181166! Terrific shot!

And congratulations also to electricgudgeon, sparkie1263, and RonM - well done indeed!

I'm very chuffed to get an entry into the runners up this month - there were tons of great images posted throughout the month.

As a couple of members have noted, it's a tough selection process getting to the winner and runners up. In case anyone's interested, here's what we do:
- create a thread each month in the Moderator board where any image can be nominated by any moderator
- as great images are posted by members, they get nominated (throughout the month - there are already some nominees for December)
- as the month draws to a close, all moderators cast a vote for their 'top 6' photos from the month's nominees. Much like the monthly challenge voting, these are done on a points basis - 6 points down to 1 point.
the votes are tallied, and the winner and top handful of runners up announced.

As you can imagine, the voting is the hard part - I usually need the best part of an hour to do it. But I find it a joy to do, as often I'll see images I didn't get time to see on the main forum - so many high quality photos get posted!
