    Good luck and have fun.

    I will be your judge, jury and executioner. ;)

    Currently creating a scenario that happens to be in the summer and is apparently 'stormy' (not that I can see it) so thought I'd quickly chuck a screen shot in here.

    Dear All,

    Due to events beyond my control, I will need to adjust the time of closure for the contest. I simply will not be available on Friday or Saturday at all.

    As such, the submissions will close at 22:00 GMT, on Thursday July 29th 2021.

    Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    G'd evening y'all, thank you for your participation.

    I was curious to see what will happen, nobody came up with a Gettysburg screenshot from the Hanover line line ;)

    Well enough joking around, time to announce the results,

    3rd place goes to Craigie-C, very British weather indeed!

    2nd place goes to cscarpenter, for this great shot of heavy rain at Conwy Castle!

    1st places goes to NEC Railfan for this great Amtrak double-header screenshot. The bright sky worked surprisingly well, the composition is topnotch and the angle of the rain really conveys a sense of speed and strong wind.

    Congratulations to all, NEC Railfan will get to choose this week's theme! :D

    Theme would be BR 1950s-1960s as that was what was voted the highest.

    Anyway, great job for the top 3 and congrats NEC Railfan for winning :D

    The winner of each week still has the option of chosing a theme for the following week, that is part of the prize for winning
    The poll for voting for a theme was only introduced after certain winners failed to respond with a theme of their own, and only comes into effect if the winner for the week does not respond. Hope that makes sense
    Cheers
