The results have been announced for the Photo and Video (Merivale) Photo competition held recently. The competition theme was "My pride and joy"

I am amazed; clearly what the professional photographer judges consider to be good photography is light-years away from my ideas. I suspect I won't bother again with these.

The whole set of submitted photos should be visible HERE

The rules are HERE

First place - Winner gets a Panasonic GF2 with 14-42mm lens.
