Its been a long wait for this next round of results. I promise we haven't been lazy, we just haven't had enough entries to be able to judge it until now! I hope that people who have had entries highly commended but haven't won will try again each week as we love the images we're featuring in the galleries.
Please do let us know if you're having any exhibitions by the way as we're happy to feature them on the site if they are relevant.
This time around we have had a mix of urban scenes, portraits and moody landscapes sent to us. We've had a notable entry from Leon Lester entitled "Integration". A digitised version of a 2008 work of acrylic on canvas. We love textures and this work really caught our attention, it has a depth and mesmeric feel to it. My biscuit ended up disintegrating in my cup of coffee after staring at it too long...

The photographer Eddie Think used an external flash to get this just right. Here is a description in his own words of how he did it:
"The photo is off a spring evening, when my friend Robbin and I went over to the local skatepark in Utrecht, the Netherlands. We shot this photo in about 10 tries with an external flash to make him "pop" out of the background a lot more."
