    Rules:
    - Screenshot should be in some way (can be very tenuous) linked to the theme. Otherwise anything goes.
    - You can enter up to 3 screenshots, posted as separate posts. You can delete and replace if you wish.
    - 3rd party content / Reshades / Reskins etc. are welcomed but are not mandatory.
    - Previous week's winner to decide winner (can't enter themselves).
    - The winner chooses the new theme for next week (and becomes the new judge).

    Entries will close at 9:00 PM BST on Friday, July 15th and will be judged by me - Craigie-C

    In the event of this weeks winner not responding by 5 PM Sunday, July 17th a new thread will be created using the theme with the highest votes in this weeks poll.


    This weeks theme will be: Around The Bend. Feel free to interpret this theme as creatively as you like.
    Good luck to all.

    Hi all,
    OMG this is just a horrible task, having to reject any of your shots is totally unfair, they really are all amazing.
    Everyone of you has excelled this week and you should all be very proud of your offerings.
    But a decision has to be made and after much deliberation I have gone with:-
    In 3rd place - Blazin with this terrific GEU30B on a long, long bend.
    [​IMG]

    In 2nd place and runner up for this week (Just), Buynot for the amazing Western Maryland H9 shot, I would gladly have that framed & displayed on a wall.
    [​IMG]

    Finally I just had to go with this stunning shot of a pair of Class 50s leaning in to the curve. Everything about this capture from the lighting to the angle of shot, just ticks every box in my eye.
    [​IMG]
    Congratulations Pookeyhead, I award you the golden master key of 1st place for this week and the honour of setting the theme and playing judge for next weeks comp.

    Thanks to you all for taking the time and effort to contribute, they were all winners in their own way and I certainly enjoyed scrolling through them all. This comp gets better by the week.:D

    Thank you for choosing mine. :) I will get to work on a new thread ASAP. It will be up soon, so we will have a full week to work towards the next one. Thanks again :)
