where do you hire these models, a Hippo in the fishpond would look very good

I have enough trouble getting human models to stand still in front of the lights let alone jump over fences. Does anyone have a good workshop on how to get them to jump?

I was under the impression that the image was taken using an infra red trigger to fire the shutter.

if the judging panel have such extensive photographic background especially as they say in photographing wolves, why didnt they pick this up before they announced it as the winner?

I think it said that the judging panel co-opted some specialists in photographing wolves to help come to this decision, rather than implying that they had been members of the original panel.

It was Ryan but this isn't the contention, the contention is if the wolf is a tame one or really wild as in "wildlife".

I think it a fab picture purely from an image point of view and don't particularly care how it is captured but obviously the competition has a different set of criteria to judge it.

I usually lob a dead lamb over the fence then boot them up the arse.

Edit: Disclaimer - do NOT try this at home unless you are trained in booting wolves up the arse then running away very quickly.

are the judging panel and panel judges different people, either way it doesnt look good for the competition, and its one i always look forward to seeing

Have to say it's a very convincing model. Doesn't look plastic at all.

Does anybody know if they have awarded another photograph with the overall winner tag?.

I wonder if there will be a reprint of the portfolio book that always comes out alongside the competition.
