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!
Congratulations Andrew, Ruud, Jesper and Richard.
