Interesting that the BBC have chosen a category winner not the overall winner as the photo to lead with on its home page - a traditional early morning picture of the gardens of Bressingham rather than the image of alliums created by a more complex development process.

So many beautiful photographs here. For its sheer delicacy, I'm drawn to the one of a group of lady's smock taken by the Young Garden Photographer of the Year.

What's your favourite and why?

Difficult to name a favourite as all so different! I did like the highly commended in the Trees section taken in Florida and the wildfower landscape too.

I like the second picture.

I like the second picture too. How apt that it's by Richard Bloom flowers

Thank you Fountainpen for posting that.
They are all beautiful.

Fisherman on the Li River.
The calm before the storm in what looks to be a reflection of the formidable sky on the river with one lowly fisherman seeking his catch before the skies darken.
A spectacular picture also featuring the mountainous region of Hechi.

FountainPen, thanks for the link. I loved the Fisherman on the Li River, for its simplicity and peace.
Mind you, the photo that was posted earlier this week, the Frosted Rose, I think, was also very beautiful, but I can’t remember who took it.

I love the Coughton Court picture. Can see it hanging in my dining room.
My second place goes to the starlings, beautifully captured on the old tap.

I like the starlings in Snowdonia best, and Mount Rainier in the mist.

I love the first one - I could live with that and keep on finding something new in it. It looks like a very good watercolour.
