    more man-made than natural

    As the title says - it does reflect some kind of bounty I suppose....perhaps not quite as seasonal as the theme requires but as Alexander says, seasonality is dependant on geography!

    I made this a couple of years ago as a "gift" for Chappers. He hates pumpkin, leeks, and turnips. I'm not sure that it is actually contest worthy, but it has been a tough week and I needed a little humor. Sorry Simon. :rolleyes:

    It is Conker season! My knuckles are killing me. Shortly after this picture was taken, my daughters and I weaponised these bad boys with string. Needless to say those two are rubbish at aiming. Couldn't hit a barn door but Jesus! They can crack my fingers every which way from Sunday!

    Looking after the Harvest

    Not one of my favourites, but I think it fits the theme.

    Congratulations acearchie, I thought when you posted yours we'd be making up the numbers! Though butch10x did come up with a brilliant photo as well. Thanks for the mention Paul. :)

    Congrats to the winners. Can't disagree with your choices either. That's a great shot Archie. Well done.

    Yesssss! Been out of the game for a while but now I'm back on top! Wohooo! ha

    Thanks for all the comments guys, means a lot.

    'Magazine' lighting is down to the softness really. Not that happy with the colours of the shot so I'm sure there is a little bit of tinkering that can still be done.

    Will get a new contest up shortly! In fact, here is it!
