Quite a few animals in the "Things" category :\
yesint: #7 looks like an absolute winner for me. Just can't understand why #1 and #3 are so special.
I'd definitely take 7 over 1.
Nicely done. Way better than 3rd.
Lensmate: Shoulda placed 1st !!
Thank you! But I guess 4th ain't bad either :)
RuthC: Congratulations, tarakanchik, on winning first place in this challenge. I really like the wonderful rough textures and the warm colours you've captured here, which contrast with the smoothness of the curves in the rocky surfaces. Ruth :-)
Is this the Vatican Museum?
I think I remember this picture from the Landscapes forum, no? It had some sun spots too if I recall correctly :) Great shot, again!
