    I like this one. I know I should clone out the foot on the right but I probably won't.

    Good luck.
    The second one in particular should interest the judges I hope.

    I wanted to have another look at the first one on a different monitor so now I'm at work and it still looks the same.
    I don't know what it is but it just looks kind of fake to me. The people particularly your son almost look like they have been superimposed on the scene. Maybe everything is just too sharp. The photo just doesn't work well for me as a nature photo, it's a great family shot though.

    Yeah to be completely honest I agree with K1W1 here. To me the first has also got a few technical issues too (not sharpness though), but it's too happy snappy for my mind, the second one has foreground interest, leading lines, context/better composition, contrasting colours, etc and so is a much stronger image.

    Thanks I think thats all fair and also educational. I was restricted by the rules what shots I could enter and definately entered shots that weren't worthy, the first being a case in point.

    The fake look of my son is because I flashed them to bring out detail and he was much closer to camera than the others. That combined with the fur hood gives him an unreal look. I got the same comments at work the next day and had an "oh darn I didn't notice that moment".

    personally I'm pinning my hopes on the pano in the artistic section (posted here a few days ago but with more contrast)

    I used to play with spiders when I was a kid but that shot is making me think twice about messing with arachnids! Killer shot DPR!

    Not a great shot by any means, but it's my first real attempt at a landscape, so it has a special place in my heart.
