Thank you to everyone who participated in Challenge 80 "Skill and Craft". We had some varied entries this week and really felt like we were seeing a good cross-section of the FT community.

There was one photo that stood out for us and that was this one from Archer. It is very effective in showing the skill, not to mention risk, involved in glass blowing. The full-sized original shows it at its colourful best. This is well-composed and excellently timed as well, giving us a real close-up. Well done (again) Archer!

As well as Archer's winning photo being shown above, you can see the original version here in all its glory:

Second place this week goes to Roncarlin for this artist’s impression of a sailing ship. The colour, perspective and textures have been captured really well.

In third place is LadyJustice81 with this batch of cakes in the talented hands of their baker.



We have 6 original and quirky Honourable Mentions this week. In no particular order:

PC57’s journalistic-style glimpse of a basket weaver at work:


PinkPepperPhoto’s example of a bright, beautiful and skilfully-made fly:


LittleMissFang does justice to the craft of papier maché:


We think Znuber has invested a lot of time, not to mention passion, into his craft:


Jennylew captures the skill required in getting that first photograph just right:


And finally a nod must go to Apus’s Dick Van Dyke-style one man band:



Well done to everybody and thanks for taking part. We do enjoy looking through all the photographs.
