This may have to wait until the results are out, but does anyone know where numbers 2 and 17 were taken? Thanks :)

Went for 17 anyway, that's one hell of a shot.

Some excellent photos!

Would love to know where No. 17 is. (And no, I won't accept "not in the city" as a valid answer) ;)

Entering this competition was pointless because I have no chance against the magnificent #17!

I would suggest that the body of water in the background is probably the River Severn. This picture may have been taken from somewhere on the M5, or just off it, and probably in Gloucestershire, or just outside.

It's a pity 45035 is running tender first in 15, as it spoils a great picture a bit, but for me, there is only one winner anyway, the magnificent 17!

Went for no. 17 there, although I did like the look of number 16 - rural little line, little 153...

No 2 (my photo) was taken on the freight-only line to the N of Doncaster linking Hatfield/Stainforth to Adwick, close to where it crosses the ECML.

Thanks to all those who voted (especially the people who voted for my shot).
It was taken from Haresfield Beacon,looking towards Wales and the River Severn.

In case it wasn't bloody obvious, I took #10. I underestimated the competition. I'm dealing with professional photographers. Now that I have time off, I will be taking some more pictures.

Don't get disheartened - no way are we all professional photographers, however you define that. I've occasionally won, and I don't do it for a job, and my equipment certainly isn't "professional" level.

The best I've ever managed is joint 3rd, and my father is a semi-professional photographer (besides his usual TGM Heathrow duties) who has all kinds of equipment available and has taught me quite a bit...

We certainly aren't all professional. I've won this in the past and there's no way I'm a professional, the train involved actually came along purely by chance as I was passing, I was just lucky that everything seemed to fall into place. I can't imagine too many professionals enter this, it is a very light-hearted competition in many ways (for example that Photo 12).

No, I'm not a sore loser. I enjoy these photo competitions, even if I don't win. I'm just going to have to think outside the box if I want to win.
