Yes, Ellis done Shooter - an excellent photo and fits the theme very well.

Will there be another contest soon Peter?

I'm playing catchup on things at the moment so might give it a rest. In particular I'd like a better way to promote these competitions because it was hard getting enough attention on it. Feel free to suggest some themes in here though. Will help make it easier to get another one going!

Quoting Peter

I'm playing catchup on things at the moment so might give it a rest. In particular I'd like a better way to promote these competitions because it was hard getting enough attention on it. Feel free to suggest some themes in here though. Will help make it easier to get another one going!

Themes = 'My most pleasurable photo of the year'
My best photo of the year
Shadows
Insects
Pets
Funny signs
Taken on the Equator / Greenwich Meridian / Tropic of Cancer / Tropic of Capricorn
Accidental photos
The best photo I have seen on TP not taken by myself.
Photos from around the world taken on one particular day in the year.

Ideas for themes:

Colour
Wildlife
Travel icons (unusual shots of often-photographed sights)
Seasons (could be split - spring, summer, autumn, winter)
Framed photos (meaning in situ frames such as a doorway or arch, not one you framed afterwards!)
Street photography
Black and white
Cold places
Beach scenes
Deserts
Mountains
Ruins
Details
Portraits

Travel mascots ;)
Reflections
Weather
Bridges

A pity Shooter was already a TP supporter or did he just get the badge for winning today?

Congrats to the winner!
I really enjoyed participating (and am of course very happy with my 3rd rank), but I completely missed the fact that the results were out. I thought they'd be published somewhere visible on the homepage or so, so that was what I was looking out for. And now I only realised it by searching through this thread again... Perhaps an idea for the future?!
I love the themes suggested, and here are a few others:

(Lone) trees
Letters (i.e. arbitrary structures that resemble letters)
Bad photos (i.e. those that didn't work out the way the photographer wanted them to be, having a visible flaw or the like)
The most dramatic photo you've taken

They are - among the featured blogs;-)
Congratulations on your 3rd place, you made the podium! I am proud of my 5th, too.
