    A useful tip for ploughing through all the entries is to use the Add to Favourites option, which is the yellow folder icon with the green and white plus sign under each picture. This puts a copy of the picture in a Favourites album that us unique to you. You can then re-visit that album at leisure, and make your final three choices.

        Me too, I used Ian's method of using the favourites, it worked very well and helped me to decide - but it was still difficult!

          Ditto. Useful method :-) I might have preferred to select my top 6 rather than my top 3 - such was the quality of the best entries... Well done everyone.

            So many good images to pick from. I had 8 in my selection and it took me ages to get to a final 3. Not having entered, I was able to be completely unbiased in my selection and have applied the same standards as I would when judging club competitions.

            Good luck everyone.

              I thought the closing date was Sunday 8th March. There are 4
              photos entered on the 9th (no's 220 - 223), are these valid entries?

                What's really nice about this method it tells someone that you thought enough of one of their pictures to do so and that's really nice

                I just saw such a message (thanks to the appropriate person) and some should be seeing such from me

                      my votes are in

                      the favourite option made it easier but still took a while to wittle it down from my initial dozen selected

                      some great photos - well done to all who entered.

                        This is so hard to do, because there are so many beautiful pictures to choose from

                          I personally feel that many of the images miss the mark with regard to the actual theme title. However, I guess that they are all Winter, but don't necessarily portray the beauty of it.

                            Hi Dave,

                            My thoughts too, so I voted accordingly.

                              I agree with almost all on how hard it was to whittle down from a shortlist of more than we are allowed to vote for
