Great work! How did you do the two gripping hands in the middle?

JL BONHOMME: Very surprised to see the two runner up with the same picture, at the same place with two different names ?

Try Googling images of Maroon Bells and you'll be amazed the whole challenge wasn't full of that view!

Rowland Scherman: Terrific snap.

Wow and from a man who photographed the Beatles and Kennedy! An honour, thanks.

On Canis lupus lupus in the Mammals B&W (Non human) challenge (2 comments in total)

I liked this one very much especially when viewed full size.
I think It would look even better if you concentrated on the head to have a square picture with the head fairly central.

On Mountain Gorilla in the Mammals B&W (Non human) challenge (7 comments in total)

Thank you both. This is one of my favourite pictures. It is a wild Mountain Gorilla in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda that is in one of several groups that are used to humans as they are visited by paying guests almost every day (if they can be found!)
I took many pictures but in only 2 of them does he look straight at the camera. It was lucky the camera was in the way or aggression would be likely to be shown if you make eye contact with them.

I really liked this powerful image. Great lighting. I'm sure it will do well if entered in a more specific challenge.

Great photo of an interesting subject that is perfect for this challenge. Should have placed higher.

On Mother's Little Helper in the Beatles vs. Rolling Stones challenge (3 comments in total)

What a fabulous entry! The combination of the title, the girl's wonderful expression and her location in the wash basket give the immersion of her lending every assistance short of actual help.

On Dirt flies in the Dirt challenge (4 comments in total)

Thank you. The ground was just damp enough to break up in lumps that flew well but still large enough to show up well. You wouldn't want to be in a close second place behind that lot!

Thanks

TakePictures: As a Nikon shooter I find this an awesome capture! :-)

Congrats!

That's funny because I was wondering if a Nikon might have done better with this low light and large dynamic range!

Thanks everyone. In the space of an hour and a quarter the scene went from partially sunlit to all dark with a small pool of moonlight. The amounts of cloud down in the valley varied over time too.

This deserved to do much better than this. Great shot and so fitting for the theme.

Yes they were very plentiful and easy to see. All viewing in the park is from back of small jeep type vehicle which stick to tracks. If a Rhino gets on track and approaches keep the jeep backs off. Did see a pair of Rhino chase each other over a track near us and was glad we were not in the way but did not feel unduly worried. We went with very specialist bird watching group but whoever you go with they all have to hire local jeep and guides who will serve you well. Indian tour operators are very good at giving you what you want. Kaziranga is a long way from other places so expect long journey to get there.
