First Place Winner-natureguy --300 points
This beautiful piece stood out even amongst the other entries, which were all of a very high standard. The combination of fresh colours, details and composition are gorgeous. The bright yellow bird is perfectly highlighted, and is a very eye-catching subject with an endearing, lively aspect. I'd love to have this on my wall! Well-deserved first place.

One of a series of lovely paintings, this piece is a pretty, delicate watercolour representation of a Red-Headed Tit. "Hello Handsome" is the perfect title for this adorable, cheeky little guy. I love the way the flowers frame the subject too.
Third Place Winner-UszatyArbuz --100 points
The bright, bold colours and digitally painted bokeh background really make this piece. There is fantastic detail captured in deceptively simple strokes and at first glance, it can be taken for a photo! Lovely work.
Thank you to all who participated. It was a very difficult decision but between the three of us, Eruanna17, CameronKobe and myself, we were able to agree on the winners. Congratulations also to the two runner up's. A SPECIAL thank you to CameronKobe for sharing her views as to why each of these images were chosen.
