Oooh, a free choice of subject.... that's made things more difficult

Ricoh GR3:
Slug and toadstool.

I would like to point out that this image has not been manipulated in any way. This little fellow really is sitting on my knee. He is sadly departed now but for almost 4 years, this wonderful Robin was our constant companion. He would feed from the hand up to 30 times a day. He would come into the house and sit with us. He would tap on the window if he couldn't get in. He would fly down and sit on your shoulder or in this case, your knee. A wild animal and not a pet but he brought a lot of joy and is sadly missed.

Wow... all the entries are fabulous. This was a very tough contest to judge. After looking at the photos all day long, I've decided on:
3rd place: Elias Paniki - singer. She is really enjoying performing. Glad concerts are returning. Great capture.
2nd place: tie between vendee - mushroom and slug and Kwb - panorama. Both very difficult images to pull off. Spectacular images.

And the winner is UncleVanya - bell tower. Love the way image transitions from silhouette to details and the bell tower turns into a negative space abstract. Well seen and conceived. Very creative. It is now UncleVanya's time to set up the next contest.

Enjoyed all the images. Hope to see you all in the next contest.
Thanks for participating,
barondla

Thank you! I need to read up on how this works but I am sure I can figure it out. Drop me a PM if you have time to explain.
