Movies certainly provide a common ground for most of us, they seem to broach all cultures and countries and belief systems so that no matter where we are in the world or what language we speak we were able to interpret them with a photograph, a medium that truly is universal.

Well done to everyone, you all need an Honourable Mention this week!! Thanks to Chuck for his invaluable input, as you can see all of the HM's could easily be Top Tens..(hehe..Im not sure he wants to ever win again because he found the selection process almost ridiculous this week!!)

We chose the featured pictures which, apart from being sharp clear images and which portrayed the theme well, all had a certain wow factor attached. I love it when pictures make us think creatively, when form, perspective and colour are used to full advantage. So well done to those selected...you truly shine this week!

  5. For some reason I can still only look at 2 pics and then it will not go back a page. This is the only site it does that in. How odd.

    Some gorgeous movie pics!!! I am having a hard time choosing. Wonderful job everyone!

  6. May I suggest that you open the sites in new windows.

  7. empress it does the same thing to me at Heather's advice I now right click and click on open picture in a new window, and when I am finished click the white x in the red box at the top right hand corner and come right back to Picture Perfect. Hope this will help you .

  8. What do you mean? Open more than one window or use a different browser?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Aaah I can do that. ROFL Yes I will have to because it will not go back any other way. Thank You both!

  10. Happens to me too, I right click and open the picture in a new window, then click the red box with the white x and come back to the previous page, it's annoying but the only way I can view. Good luck !!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's an interesting and difficult process to choose... I'm not a photographer, (though I do play one on tv) and my lack of knowledge shows when going through all those shots. You sometimes have to look beyond the subject matter, and view it from a technical standpoint as well... I was just thinking, "Wow, I like this..."

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well this is a surprise. Thank you....wow.

    ReplyDelete

  40. It would be lovely if the hosts put up the winner images on the side bar, this was usually done before. They are worth being remembered and studied!


    From the moment I opened a certain blog, I regarded it to be the winner image. So....I think we have a winner soon :)
