Comment: Very intriguing studies made through the use of the extension tube. The pine candle photo brings it together with great texture and composition, and I've also given a point to the view of the barn because I'm a sucker for a leading line landscape

Comment: Your world of bike tacks, stacked chairs and banks of conduit waiting to be installed, captured beautifully resonates strongly with me. I love how the aluminium siding shot has been realised, from you seeing its potential to pulling it off with aplomb.

Comment: I get a great sense of the world in which you inhabit with your collection for the month. The trioplan shot is full of lovely texture, and I think the composition of your bridge photo is particularly wonderful.

Comment: I've split the points between your stunning close-up-overloaded-bokeh-botanics and black-and-white `portraits. Both series are really well executed.

Comment: You have a looking at the world around you and focusing in on something special. Plenty of interesting subjects in your set.

Comment: I get a sense of your locked-down life with this series of vignettes of the inside of your house and garden.

Comment: Really wild variety of subjects and techniques and a bit humour thrown in. Looks like you really challenged yourself over the month with impressive results.

Comment: I like how you kept coming back to the cypress vine throughout the month and seeing it in different angles.

Comment: Really creative effort with some of those setups. I like that approach of throwing light at transparent items and seeing what happens. The ribbon shot is lovely and gets the points from me.

Some very difficult decisions. And many striking photographs - I'm glad I took the time to look through these wonderful sets. These are my favourites:

Comment: I aimed for 4/week and ended up with pic-a-day - and I like most of them. Happy with this challenge :-)

Dena: Another great start, too bad you had to abandon. 1 and 6 are one level beyond photography.
