Feel free to post the images you submitted or the ones that didn’t make the cut. Speaking personally I chose the wrong image for our RFF audience, I’ll post some of the ones that stayed on my hard drive. This is always a fun thing, to see what WASN'T in the contest.

Some really nice work all round.

Over 2 months late, I've finally got my film from the day processed.

Nothing fabulous. I'll have to work on what I'm doing and use a better film too (not blaming the tool - it's just I don't like the "ink on the photo" effect of Shanghai GP3!!)
