I may not know the technicalities of photography, and Elements, but I have always had a love of, and appreciation of art.
This has been a very difficult week for me. I would be happy to put any of the pictures on my wall.
To enable my selection, I put the pictures on my TV - the results were amazing.
My final selection, in alphabetical order, is . . . . .
fotofrank . . Glass with beads. I don't know about 'beads'Frank. They look like crystal to me. The effect of the light shining through, is beautiful.
Scania . . . New Forest sunset. I felt like Alice in wonderland - able to step into that picture. Solitude, peace, and tranquility. I could picture myself walking my dogs there.
Simone . . . Yellow fields. It was this small picture which gave me the idea of putting them on the TV. Is that a rapeseed field? It seems to go on forever. And the way it meets up with that amazing blue sky - beautiful.
My Image of the week just had to go to. . . . Pete B . . . . . Thistle.
Like a magnet, it kept drawing me back. I picture myself sitting there, gazing down the river, completely at peace. And the thistles in the foreground - absolutely stunning.
Thank you all for giving me the most difficult task of my life.

Margaret, what a tough week you had for your first week as judge! Very resourceful to view them on your TV and I enjoyed reading your reasons for choosing each picture! Frank, Simone and Phil your images are wonderful!
Pete, I like the way you used the thistles to add foreground interest to your river scene, congratulations for earning the IOW title!
