You need to change the thread title Peter, we now have two threads with the same title (which I didn't think was posssible).

Careful Peter - there are enough mischievous members that could be tempted to make you the winner for real - a bit like the research ship that was almost called Boaty MacBoatface!!  Not that I was tempted, you understand.... :mutley :mutley :mutley

You've gone and done it now Sol! I could easily fill this thread with 100 examples of amazing scenes of Penhayle!

This is my nomination from the late, great Alan Downes. As it's taken me a week to put a kit together I'm in awe of how he could turn out detailed dioramas of such quality at such speed.

Sorry Peter you can't compete with this.

I could spend my life trying to decide which of the fabulous photos to choose for me nomination each month.

This month, there isn't a train in sight but Phil's Pen-y-Bryn is truly stunning - it's such a pity most of the early photographs went astray either through the Photobucket fiasco or the major crash we suffered on here.

This is my selection for November:

A very atmospheric layout from a few years ago, Downsway South by bazmatic.

I was going to nominate Phil ....Pen Y Bryn is such a stunning layout and its ages since he was featured....

I am delighted to cast my vote for this photo. Its one of my favourite shots and the post describing how he went about filling a tiny bit of dead space are well worth reading.

I do hope that you wont feel obliged to be totally impartial and be inhibited in any way from choosing your own nomination Peter!

Carpe diem. :lol:

I'm a bit surprised that it has taken this long for the majestic Pen-y-Bryn to get a mention.  Not only superb modelling, but wonderful photography too.
This was one of those layouts that scared me, such is its quality, and yet there is something there for everyone, whatever level of modelling, to learn from.  There are loads of photos that I could pick, but Peter's choice hit a resonance with me.... as simple and as honest as you could wish for, but skilful and time eating to produce.  So my vote also goes to....



Michael

I wonder just how popular this member selected  "Picture of the Month" idea is .................................  We had hoped lots of members would participate but it appears not.

This month, there have been 170 views but only 4 photographs have been nominated .................. :hmm

I wonder if we should just set up a "selection committee" instead and select the monthly photo "internally".......... :roll:

What do members think ?

I think everyone is getting the covid19 'blues' Peter.

After all, if you are stuck indoors, there's only so much additional modelling time everybody wants.

Instead of making this month specific, why not just have nominations for Picture of the Month on this thread.

That way, members can add pictures as they come across them and then whoever is going to choose which picture to use just has to look at what's not been used already or been added.

Another one from me, Crackington Quay.

It's the "whoever is going to choose the picture" that's the problem Ed.  Personally, I don't see the point in re-posting "photos I like" then leaving Alan (or whoever) to choose one as a header.

The idea was that members nominate a picture, just as you've suggested, but then vote on those nominated.  We'd anticipated member participation in both selection and voting but we're not seeing that.  In the past, Alan chose the picture and that was that.

If that's what members want, then that's absolutely fine but we'd tried to create something a little "different" in these very strange times we find ourselves.  Maybe it will develop in time or maybe we're just barking up the wrong tree ..........................

Forgot to say - thanks for your nomination.  :thumbs

Hi Peter

I wouldnt worry......I think you are doing a great job (well I would say that wouldnt I? :lol:)  Its good to be reminded of some of the excellent layouts that have graced these pages.......looking at this months nominations is a real pleasure.

Although ostensibly we have over 500 member :shock:.......the reality is that each week the same 30 - 35 members look in. Of that I doubt if more than half post regularly........so I guess an initial target might be to aim for  a minimum of 15 votes/nominations.........after only two months we are not too far away from that.

I do agree it would be encouraging if every regular poster could take a few minutes once each month to at least vote or comment.

What do other members think?

Hi Peter

I'm afraid that I have been a non-voter mainly because I happen to like the vast majority of the layouts featured here!

I am happy, subject of course to Alan being prepared to take the responsibility, of having a picture chosen for me to enjoy each month.  That does allow for a more obscure layout to be featured - perhaps something that the members have overlooked??

Barry
