    Congratulations fc!
Though it wasn't in my tt (sorry), it is nevertheless a deserved ranking. Tough decisions...

    fc An important lesson about the open door; thanks for that. In GIMP you can s-t-r-e-t-c-h the four corners to fit the frame which helps when you are not shooting square on (perspective convergence/tilt) or are just off level.

    As you know, I placed your shot much higher - just loved the colour and inviting storefront - you're right about the credit card though.

    Congrats on your tt finish. I liked this one. I kinda guessed it was you after I looked it up on google. You fooled me completely with your open entry though LOL. Forget the lines on the camera - use a square box to check the alignments when you are pping.

    Thanks for comments.
Jade o didn't get the top level. Need to use the lines on camera more often.
Ref the open door. I was shown the difference of an open door and closed one when assisting a wedding photographer, it works in giving the invite.
( the at the wedding was the abbey doors in bath)
Mepo this a guick shop in the rain and a horde of tourists heading down the road towards the shop
Bath has declined to be in the Britain in bloom as it keeps winning so they have not entered this year 2011 as well.
Health and safety reared it's head and the stands had to go.
Lo .credit card warning if you go inside.....

    This shot grabs me and makes me want to go inside. I think it should be a tad sharper - the foliage at the top is indistinct for example. What happened to the hanging baskets and the rack of postcards that they used to have outside? Seems like a simple shot but the colours and composition I find attractive.

    The more I look at this photo, the more I wish I could peer through the windows and walk through the open door. It's a very richly coloured and inviting display.

    I like storefronts and the composition and colour here are very good. The open door is a nice touch and clearly on theme. If I had to fault anything it is the perspective tilt on the top of the frame; an easy fix in GIMP. My no. 2.
