RuthC: Kivi, you have managed once again to achieve one of the top spots in this challenge. Stourhead is such a beautiful place, and you have chosen your subject well, to drive the potential puzzlers crazy with so many shades and textures of green! Congratulations! Ruth :-)

Thank you once again for you kind words, Ruth :)

In reply to:

RuthC: This is beautiful, Kivi, and I think you would have scored higher if the sandbaggers hadn't been giving out .5's and 1's to many of the excellent entries. Not happy with them!
Ruth :-)

Thank you once again, Ruth. That's unfortunately a problem in many challenges, but difficult (if not impossible) to prevent. Kivi

PS. I wish I would have saved my "A Perfect Pair" image to this challenge instead putting it into 'Dainty Damselflies' :)

On photo Roman Footbridge in the Stone Bridges challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

jefcar: The "Roman Bridge" over the River Goyt between New Mills and Marple Bridge is actually 17th century.

Thank you for the correction, Jefcar. Obviously I should have done some research about the history of the bridge before writing anything. However, old and unbelievably slim structure, although much younger than I thought.

Well deserved win. Absolutely wonderful concept and amazing shot. The one who gave this rating 1.0 should not be voting in these challenges...

slehner: Funny story, I posted a near exact shot but with about an inch of snow covering to the shaped by water challenge. GL.

We were there luckily in the summer. I would not like to drive some of the roads if they are icy...

tarakanchik: awesome shot.

Great shot. I am sure that the screen does not make full justice to it and would love to see the 40x60" print.
