Assignment | Cool Colours

That was our theme this last week, and a few of you managed to nail it! well done! We could, as ever, only choose three winners, first, second and third…

Of course, first place comes to you courtesy of thinkTankPhoto this week (Next week it’s BlackRapid!) and so, without any further chatter by ME, let’s get these winners up here!

First place, and the new owner of a memory card holder from thinkTankPhoto is…

LISA as voted by our moderators “this has completely captured my attention. The softness of the image along with the cool blue and pods really set off the dreamy feel of the overall image.” Well done, Lisa! Please contact me via email [ spollock@thinktankphoto.com ] and I’ll post your prize out! – Find more from Lisa here on Flickr

Second winner this week is HollyBug, well done!! “abusing white balance is a good way to pull the colour warmth one way or the other. All this dreamy shot was missing was a fairy or two.”

And, this week our third winner was Veggie1215 with this stunning photograph.. “…not entirely dissimilar to the image given at the opening but definitely cool to the point of freezing.”
