I enjoyed looking through the images for the Canon Online, there are many varied and interesting ideas people have come up with and picking the 10 ten took a bit of time and even longer to put them in order. Some have great use of light and mood in them.

1st    Tram Travellers:  by Lynn Hedges

Every time I looked at this image I saw more and more so kept coming back to it. The different expressions in each window, tells so many different stories. The lady in the front window you makes you wonder why she is crying. Great Image

2nd   Leaving Home: by   Anne Lamb 

This is lovely; I could almost see the bear moving down the hallway. The colours and the light all work well together and had a great feeling about it

3rd   Raptor in the Rain:  by Jeanette Nee APSNZ

This has real impact. Even with the white background I feel you are drawn right into the bird about to attack you. The way the wing feathers are splayed out adds to the impact

4th    Captivated:  by Gail Stent APSNZ

Lovely feeling in this image even though it is under water is looks delicate and soft. Great lighting and the reflection really add to the image. Black and White works well

5th    Trapped by Liz Hardley FPSNZ, EFIAP/b, LRPS

This is called Trapped and it gives you the feeling of him being trapped and alone. The framing of the steps and him dressed in black makes him a strong focal point. You can imagine that it is so quite adding to the loneliness

6th   Miss Mini by Julia De Cleene LPSNZ

A great expression on the dog staring you down. Great use of framing and the colours all work well. Nice detail on the fur. The type of image that would look good up on someone wall.

7th   Another Monday by Bill Hodges APSNZ   EFIAP

The movement of the train speeding by at speed along with the man on the left gives the feeling of the city life rushing by. The man in white has been frozen making him a focal point for your eyes to rest on. Works really well in black and white

8th   Reflected arches by Joan Caulfield LPSNZ 

Great colours in this image. The reflections, shapes and lines help lead your eyes right into the image. Gives me a feeling of being trapped in a quiet place

9th   Chapel on the shore by Martin Sanders LPSNZ

I like the position of the church in the corner and the trees to the left help balance it out. The light rays help bring your eyes back to the church every time. Well seen

10th   Peek-a-boo by   Deborah Martin

The title adds to this fun image. Like how you have caught it with the eye between the feathers. The position in the frame works well and plenty of detail in the feather.
