This is a beautiful portrait of this Ape and deserving of first place in the Challenge. I spent two days in Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park but was not able to witness something like this. Congratulations.Jean-Marie
Steve Throndson: jmgir, The shot was done some time ago with a film camera on a tiny tripod taped to the Yamaha's gas tank. It looks faster than it was. I had the shutter on 'B' and held my finger down for a few seconds. I tried 3 or 4 frames, and this was the only one that wasn't blurred beyond recognition. Steve
Thank you Steve, good story, enjoy the weekend.Jean-Marie
Just can't believe the sandbagging for this challenge!!!
Hello Steve, how fast were you going on this ride. Love the lights.
Lexo is back !!!
photoman555: Just wondering why the winner got DQ? Does anyone know?
I fully agree with photoman555, entries should be DQ'ed before voting starts so members don't waste their time voting for images that shouldn't be there and also for a fair ranking.
The Mick: Very intriguing image! It's a shame to see a high-end place like that destroyed. Wonder what happened?
Great image, congratulations.
I would have cropped it a bit more to decrease they negative space, great colours.
One more angry bird, so much like the Angry Blue Bird, a wonderful image, congratulations.
Perfect timing, how long had you been waiting for the shot?
Very sharp and wonderful reflections. Very nice composition.
Highly photogenic birds and you got a great image, love the composition and details.
Nice image but a little more color would have help.
