I so agree Christina, it is so hard. The choices detract in no way from so many beautiful amazing, funny, clever and brilliant pictures in the forum over the last year. It has been mind blowing at times, and I can't tell you how wonderful it is to be a part of this great group of clever clever people. Thanks to all.I want to thank Jill and Leo for their support and especially Leo for this poll and its organisation.
Thanks also to admins for their support, Sue for her tolerance and Terry for offering a prize. Above all thanks for the wonderful contributions and the comments which encourage us so much. We couldn't do it without you. I would like to thank My Mum and Dad, my lovely family , my dog Gnawra and my cat Rosie who have contributed in their way. Thanks also to all the animals who seem to play a large part in this area of FT. Thanks,Woof, Baa,Cheep,Cluck and Meow to you all. Ren.

It's been fun participating in this forum this year. Good luck to the finalists. You give us all something to 'shoot' (groan) for.

This multiple choice is more difficult than a particularly difficult round in the Impossible Game in Global Challenge. Hardcore. And that's a fact.

What a splendid idea and such a difficult choice. I can see that it will be very close when the results are published.

Well Leo did most of it. The admins chose the final 4. Jill, Leo and I chose the months. Blame Chavs for having the idea. It is all of you that made the choices so diverse and lovely.

Very impressive finalists, it was good to have one of mine in there as well, and after whittling down to two picked the one I'd probably put on the wall.

Wow. To have one of my photos nominated for this final is breath-taking. I'm delighted and thrilled. But mostly humbled in the presence of so many fantastic photographers.

I haven't posted any new photos for a little while as I'm away doing field work and forgot the cable to connect the camera to the laptop....
