  1. Enjoying the water images, especially Mary’s Sunset Beach, lovely colours of oranges and blues.

  2. I like Ian’s “Down the Plughole” but Kelly’s is amazing – to capture the rider doing a somersalt is superb…

  3. Thanks June; and I think you’ve captured the texture of the coffee beans really well.

    Well done to everyone who captured real rainbows, and also for the creative alternatives. Top marks to Ian’s entry, what a great idea.

    In case anyone is interested in how I made the twirled picture, see Endless hours of fun. 🙂

  2. Nigel Hoult says:

    Another great set of photos. I like David’s and Tony’s for the great locations, and Ian’s flowers for their originality. I must say I’m surprised no-one opted for the “thanks NHS” rainbows!

  3. Janet Jackson says:

    Ians image really stands out, a clever idea. I also like Brendas and Davids rainbow.

    Thanks Sharon, June, and Mary! 😀 It didn’t take that long, finding the right colour plants and then selecting the 7 (from the 50 or so I took) best photos to use took the most time. I’ve got presets stored in Lightroom, so it only took a couple of mouse clicks to get all 7 images ready for slicing and composition in Photoshop.

    The 7 plants are: Red – Crocosmia, Orange – Day Lily, Yellow – Dahlia, Green – Rosemary, Blue – Agapanthus, Indigo – Buddleia, and Violet – Purple Loose Strife.

    I particularly like Bob’s, Julie’s, June’s, and Mary’s for their creativity and different take on the subject. My favourite “traditional” rainbow is Brenda’s, but enjoyed seeing all of them. 🌈 🌈🌈🌈😊

    Thanks Sharon. A lovely display of rainbows – and rainbow colours. Well done everyone. My favourite this week for its originality is Ian’s 7 colour stitched images of the flowers in his garden. As for real rainbows – David’s Rainbow over Signal hill looks great, and I like Tony’s Rainbow in Fowey Harbour.

    A lovely colourful collection. Enjoying the colourful double rainbows of Nagui’s and Nigel’s images. Julie’s twirls inspired me (on Flickr) as I had forgotten to enter. Bob’s rainbow flowers drew me in, liked the texture too. Especially liked Ian’s professional looking image of all the 7 garden rainbow colours too, looks like it took a while to put together!

  7. Sharon Hewitt says:

    Loved Mary’s tulips, just because I love good flower photos. Also Ian’s for the same reason, but also because he has the colours, and the order he puts them in, exactly right.
    Julie’s twirls v interesting too.
