As our highest scoring image, "Get a Dog They Said" received critique, the judge said she could feel the cold and wet, and the sea made it look windy too. The promenade was wet, perhaps from waves coming over it and the seagulls were a nice touch. She said the picture had perhaps been created from several images* but if so it had been done very well.

* Surely not!
