** Mini Challenge #417 Winner! **
7 months ago

Some great entries folks, very nice colours and cloud formations, thanks to all the participants for entering. Choosing the overall winner was a tough call and there really wasn't much in it all, so without further ado, here are my chosen top 3.

3rd place goes to threed 123 with this great sunburst behind the cloud which I really liked due to the colour, reflection on the sea and the boat which just gives it a sense of scale and adds an interesting additional element, a lovely capture, very well done.

2nd place goes to Ken Croft with Dante's Inferno, great title and I loved the industrial silhouette with such a great cloud formation and colour, it really was a tough call between this one and the winner, excellent work Ken.

And the winner is............Solitude from Averagjoe! I loved this shot, how the clouds lead you into the horizon down to the sea and back to the beach, beautifully finished off with the lone walker giving it a lovely sense of scale, the surf also mimics the clouds above. All the elements make an interesting and original landscape shot with great depth, excellent work and congratulations to Joe on this one, a worthy winner IMHO.

Once again, thanks to all who took part, there are no losers in this great hobby of ours

Congrats to the winner with a really excellent image. My entry only came second, but as my only other full challenge entries resulted in a 7th then a 5th, I must be improving! I hope the winner organizes then next mini, because I don't really want it handed down to me.
