Yet again, many very good images which doesn't make it easy to choose, but, hey, I love a challenge!  Here are my selections for the week from 19 to 25 June 2011. 

 

Travel & Outdoor

Such a peaceful looking scene - calm and still.  I very much like the reflections, the composition is good and the colours are excellent.

People & Portrait

What a great expression in the eyes!  So smug - fantastic capture.

Nature & Wildlife 

This was a really difficult decision as there were some really superb images here.  But, for me, there were two absolutely stand-out images in this gallery this week but the two images are very different.  If I could give a second place, it would go to Avi Hirschfield for Kingfisher Territorial Fight which is a technically excellent capture and a great image.  However, the winner of this category this week is Orange Baboon by Jesper Vasell.  Apart from being a wonderful composition and a superb capture, it just says one thing to me:  Pathos

Weekly Challenge - The Longest Day

Yet again, some great images.  My choice for the winner of this challenge is A Little 3am Nighcap.  Composition, colours, the whole look and feel of this photo  and that beautiful blue glow is truly superb.  I'm interested that it was taken with a point-and-shoot which just goes to show what I am always telling people that it is the photographer that takes the picture and not the camera.  Love it!
