Here I am glad to announce the winners for both the Eligible & Exhibition catergory for challenge 152.
In the Eligible category, the first place goes to "The Thinker" submitted by Sky.
An wonderful expression shown by a gorilla that really mesmerizing to look at . The gorilla seems in a very heavy state of thinking and this moment was masterly captured.
In the Exhibition category, the first place goes to non other than Awais Yaqub with his beautiful capture of "Sad Sakeena".
The watery eyes and the overall expression of Sakeena really captured our heart that want to make us share the sadness with her. The close up further at to dramatic point of this shot

I want to say thanks to the host for his work and all the other experienced STF members that always help answering questions from people who join the challenge.
There are others STF members that always take their time to encourage competitors posting nice comments about their entries. I must say thanks them, Sky you are one of them and I have no doubt that you are going to be a very good host in the next challenge.
Finally and obviously, congratulations to the winners!!!.
Stop, think, breathe, and shot!
What wonderful images!! Both well deserved #1 spots ;-)) Can't wait to see the next Challenge theme! Unfortunately, I will only be able to enter the Exhibition Gallery since I will be here, there and everywhere for the next several weeks.
Thanks, Tabrizi for an interesting theme.
At the moment, I am in total shock and of course, crying (joyous tears). There were so many great entries and I cannot tell everyone what an honor this is. So many talented photographers and at this point I am truly humbled.
Congratulations to Awais as well as all who participated in the challenge. And thank you to everyone who voted for my entry. I'd also like to thank the cooperative gorilla who posed as my subject.
I'll get the information up for the next challenge asap (as soon as the shock wears off and I dry up these tears).
Please. Somebody pinch me.
'If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?'
that was a great entry and deserved to win. Now you get to do all the work. ; )
Constructive criticism is welcome regarding any aspect of my images including PP, but leave the actual PP work to me...
