Ice Cold

Ice Cold

Stripping wallpaper with a steamer, had a cold can of coke on the side, and the steam condensed into tiny droplets.

lovely example of an everyday item. Those droplets are so uniform! Nice one.

Another example of all that is wrong with the POTW format. Nice pict but it made it with a single comment that was itself posted a week before the competition date.

Hmmmm... I didn't notice that the comment was made before the contest started!

Maybe I should change the rules so that only entries with more than one vote are eligible to win? What does everyone think?

I would make that 6 votes. If half a dozen people can't even bother to vote for a pict then it's not worth postinjg to your front page. It would also limit the effects of voting shenannigans although it hasn't been that bad this week.

I agree actually, I intended this picture to go into the following POTW, thinking that the last one had finished, so I think that gav_davies butterfly picture should be this week's picture of the week. Perhaps another alternative would be to zero any ratings if a picture is moved into the POTW category, so that only subsequent ratings are taken into account. Apologies for any problems inadvertently caused, I agree it appears unfair.

Jools - Nice macro shot and a deserved winner. Great composition for such a simple subject. :0)

This is a nice macro, but I'm surprised it won. And on one vote? Maybe the rules should be reexamined. But then again, is that the only reason any of us post our pictures here? Smile

A good shot, but this needs to have more of the subject in focus to be a great shot, and it is a pretty common view of a cold cola can.

OK, as Jools has kindly said that gav_davies should be POTW, I will change the winner today.

I will also be amending the POTW rules so that:
1. Only entries with 3 or more votes are eligible to win.
2. A vote only counts if it is made during the duration of the contest.

This should hopefully make things fairer Smile

Thanks for doing that Mark. Sorry for any grief I've caused!
