I was planning to take pictures of a local fishing competition on a loch and happened to check the the newest challenge just before I went out. So happy! (Not least as I have rather lost my mojo so was great to have a focus, excuse the pun). I chose B&W High Key for this but wonder if it may have been better in colour....or normal exposure? I'd welcome your comments.

Thank you for your lovely comments, scores and a blue ribbon- my first! :-)

I've just noted that this is my second highest score and that the highest one has exactly the same title.....I clearly lack imagination! :-)

The high key'ish treatment in B&W works really well here to set the mood.
