We always find that the more obvious the theme, the less obvious some of the pictures become. Not all of them, obviously!
Our favourite this month is Geof, with his slightly Stalinist footballer at West Brom (more details here – looks like a slightly terrifying hard case in real life).
And man of the match this month has to go to Rob, again for his creative use of lego and astonishing attention to detail. If you think this is easy, have a go at doing things like this yourself! Rob gets it all right, composition, depth of field (tricky at this scale) and manages to get humour and literate references in. Why is Lancelot smiling?

This month’s theme was intended to get people thinking about narrative – trying to tell a story with one image. Man of the match goes to Rob – lovely clarity in this food shot.
Honorable mention goes to Dave with this beautifully composed landscape.

Moira took our favourite shot this month – a nicely thirdsy shot of the steel balls in Sheffield, even getting some blue sky in January – now that takes skill. It’s the intentional composition that gives the shot it’s professional look. Perfect exposure here too, f2 aperture drawing our attention to the subject.

A very broad church of shots this month – I had to give man of the match to this little story from Rob, perhaps bit literal. Fantastic attention to detail, as always.
Honorable mention should also go to Moira’s lovely colourful, engaging landscapes (the next three) and Dave’s health-and-safety DIY shot (black and white, you can’t miss it!)
