This sure was kind of a fun challenge and I knew exactly where to go to. In The Scottish Highlands you can find lots of coloured houses, but two places are quite famous for it: the villages of Tobermory on the Isle of Mull and Portree on the Isle of Skye.

Normally I only have one submission for a challenge, but this time I had 5 images. I did find it difficult to pick one, therefore thanks to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Bear_Music and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' P-A-U-L for helping me out.

Two of my outtakes:

Wow, 7.125 after 17 votes. It's not likely to hold but for the moment I will enjoy these for me unknown scores :-)

Down to 6.57 in only 15 votes, how is it possible, only high votes the first day and almost only low votes the second day.

Love it!! Very true to his style, other than I think a vertical shift would have helped a little, the sign being centered is a little awkward. Still, and easy 7.
