Oh my...what a week this was! I hoped there would be a colour explosion and boy you didn't disappoint!!

Colour defines us in many ways don't you think? Not only by the colour of our skin, our hair our eyes..but also by the colour of our clothes, the colour of the car we drive or the colour we paint our walls. For many of us, colour infuses our very soul on a daily basis, it dictates our mood and colours our perceptions. Colour is our rose tinted glasses...our detail to life.

Each week as we deliberate we always know there are at least five that are easy choices, this week there were double that, and we could easily have had 20 Honourable Mentions too. To make my selection easier, I usually look for the best flower picture, bird picture balloon picture and so on, and try an narrow my choices down that way. This week I never had a hope in hell of doing anything of the sort. So here in no particular order, are our...

Top Ten finalists

1. Bites the Dust by Becky

2. Rosella by Mia

3. Vegas Strip by Joanne

4. Rainbow of Feathers by Rita

5. Colors of De Oro by Lynda

6. Carousel of Color by Rob

7. Bridge into Spring by Emma

8. Fire in the Sky by James

9. St Samson by Mitch

10. Colourful Creations by Nancie

oOo

 

And a warm round of applause for our Honourable Mentions:

  23. What a pleasant surprise this morning to find out that e-mail horse buddy Becky and I both made top ten with our horse photos. What an honor to have our photos among so many wonderful colorful photos. Best of luck to all.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Contrats to all the top ten and HMs this week. wonderful choices, voting was difficult.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Congratulations to everyone. There were many beautiful pictures this week!

    I was just wondering? I know last week you had said you picked pictures that went with the theme. Yet in the top ten list and the ten honourable mention, I see a few that don't belong. Some in the top 10 have little to no color? While in the mention a few have brilliant color! Don't get me wrong the shots are just fantastic but they didn't match the theme...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Congratulations to all of the Honorees!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Amazing shots... now comes the hard part... voting. Heck I dunno! I like em all lololol.

    ReplyDelete
  28. So close right now! 11-11 to Mia and Rita!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow it is hard for me to make a choice.. I am sure that you had a hard time choosing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Congratulations to both the top 10 and the HM's. Once the top 10 was posted it was a cinch to make my choice. Good luck to each!

    I will be leaving this awesome group as of this past challenge. I find it is far too time consuming to visit the weekly entries ( which, as far as I am concerned...if you make a post and expect visits, you need to do the same to all other participants ) I wish everyone the very best and some of you have some amazing photography skills and it was MY pleasure to have viewed them!

    ReplyDelete
  31. SUCH a hard choice!!!! excited my daughter made HM!! <3
    great job everyone!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Too bad if you are leaving PP. Yes, it's time consuming, but I hope it's OK to participate even if one doesn't have time to visit all the entries. I enjoy ppl visiting my site and leaving comments, but I'm not offended by those who don't. And I have had never time to visit all the entries, though I wish I had.

    Maybe our hosts can say something about this, because it concerns more than ladycalle.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you for choosing me out of so many wonderful pictures! This is a great way to wake up with a cup of coffee! So many wonderful photos! It is truly an honor! Best of luck to all!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks for entry, pic of mine.
    Eight are good, two really shine.

    Good luck everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  35. wow. what a selection! wonderful. Hard to decide, but I did. Good luck to all. thank you all for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  36. What wonders U all open, Rock on buddies.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Congratulations to all , all the photo's are awesome and the voting is going strong !!! There has been some talk about the photo's that aren't matching the theme but the voting shows that the ones that are ahead are well matched !!

    ReplyDelete
  38. whoaaaa ..its a close one this week!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. There is nothing in the theme which says it has to be 'brilliant' colour...so in essence only a black and white picture would be excluded this way. I feel every single one of the Top Ten does have brilliant colour in it even if its just a small percentage.

    ReplyDelete
  40. You have the wrong perception totally. On the home page it says 'visit as many as you are able' in fact you can visit and not leave comments at all. None of us visit every site every week..we just do what we can when we can, and none of us judge others by whether they visit our sites in return, ever....

    In the end though it is entirely your decision whether you want to leave or not, however it would be sad to see you go...

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think you read more into my statement then was actually there. I wasn't giving "insight" ( perception) I was offering MY opinion. I was aware we are NOT required to visit every entry....I was simply stating that I, PERSONALLY.... feel uncomfortable posting an entry....wanting all to visit and comment....then view only a half dozen myself. I did not hint or suggest that "anyone would be judged by whether they made visits or not to other sites." I can not give the time I FEEL should be given to all who make an entry....just MY opinion.....perhaps i take it more seriously then most.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Congratulations to everyone! Will have to check those listed here that I haven't seen yet but have seen so many wonderful pics already!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I took it as YOUR perception/opinion and all I was trying to do was allay any worries you may have about not visitng everyone who visits you. I was not being confrontational at all.

    Life is serious..Picture Perfect is a hobby, fun..and not serious at all..smiles!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Congratulations to all of the top 10
    and HM's

    I don't envy Heather having to pick the top 10. She did a great job.
    It was time consuming and hard work for her.
    Thanks for giving us your time Heather and giving us this great outlet for our photography.
    Who else is going to look at our photo's besides are families and friends.
    You started a great group. You can be very proud of what you have achieved here.
    I really enjoy coming here and looking at everyone's photo's. I always
    learn something new.
    Having fun is what it is all about.

    This week photo's all we're awesome.....

  45. What happens in case of a tie? This race is getting serious!

    You picked some good ones, Heather. Congratulations, all!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Amen!

    But I DO try to visit em all... just because its relaxing and when I cant? I DO feel a tad *guilty*. Some folks in here put a lot of effort into PP and I enjoy the creativity. This group gives me a lot of pleasure... so I try to give out as much as I receive *smiles*. But I don't take it personally when people don't have time to visit me... life keeps us busy!

    And I'll take this moment to thank Heather, Cherie & Gator for all the time they invest in this group... its truly awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  47. WOW Heather how did you pick 'em! Choose my favourite and voted and can see it ti tight! 9 Hour to go!
    I love it when it is exciting!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Congratulations to the ones on the top ten.
