Thank you all, I'm sorry that with everything going on I forgot to post the results from last night;

"Thistles" and "Kes" both scored 17 (out of 20).
"Worthing Pier in 20 Seconds" scored 18 (out of 20).

Both are respectable scores from a judge who seemed quite eccentric when it came to scoring. (Not bad as such but very inconsistent between what he was saying and how he was marking.) :D

I have to laugh really because the judge only scored 'Seafront Sunset' 15 out of twenty saying the buildings were in silhouette and blocked in (i.e. showing no detail). I think he needs to go to Specsavers and ask for his money back. :lol:

'The Bleak Moor' scored 18 which is more or less what I hoped for and 'A Touching Moment' of the two deer scored 19 which came as a total surprise as I thought it was the weakest of my selection and should have scored lower. To be fair, I have no idea where he was pulling the scores out from for both my pics and other peoples although I should say that the best pic did win on the night. :D

You definitely should have gotten a higher score on that first one! If that was his reasoning, he obviously didn't look at it for any amount of time. Congratulations on all your scores! :D
