Competition Results!

The competition was really strong and it is a cop out to say that so many were close to a prize, but Cheryl did spend close on two hours this morning reviewing all the images and making notes.

Anyway the winners are :-
5th Xander_H
4th lobo_verde
3rd littlejennywren
2nd foxtolbot
1st s_boulding

jamesr97: Good interaction which shows an eye for the important moment of animal behaviour

paigeb: good use of reflection of a colourful subject

lucykate: I just love those backlit leaves, a good exposure to not let those dominate

buzzybee: made me smile as well are all descended from Apes according to Darwin so why not classify humans as wildlife

lobo_verde: The patterns on the shell were a good choice of an abstract image, would have liked a tighter crop.

saxaphonium: You're very lucky to have been on a safari and I am glad that you appreciate that it is not always about the resulting image but sometimes about a shared moment with a wild animal. A good shot despite having the "wrong" lens

digitalgirl: The positioning of the hoverfly in the frame is very good. The fact you say they fly away whilst you are taking their picture is good training for a wildlife photographer

marco_delvalle1: Another that made me smile. I'm not sure I would want to be one of those three bathers with such a giant fish looming.

littlejennywren: Well what can I say, keep up this standard and you'll be giving celestun a run for his money.

s_boulding: This one struck me on first viewing and I returned to it a couple of times whilst I debated the winner. I like the differential focus between the two elephants. Also a good choice to make it B&W.

yaz: Another contender for a prize with an eye for the moment of impact

cameraboy: These are not as easy to photograph as people may think. Compositionally I like the diagonal of the body and leaf.

davidc123: An icon of the wild world and you have captured it in a relaxed yet dominant pose befitting the status in the animal kingdom.

coolcurt: How often we overlook common wildlife that is close to our homes. A good choice and I like the way the frame splits in to three sections of white, mid-tone and almost black.

foxtolbot: Another really good butterfly shot. A different angle from those normally posted and good to see the proboscis (hope I got that bit right)

abbylou: A robin as it should be seen in a wintery setting. Almost made a prize.

alianar: A good frame-filler this one. I like the complimentary leaves to the colouring of the butterfly.

xander_h: One mighty looking elephant, he contrasts well with the wall and sky and I think the image captures a good day for both of you

jonah794: Another close one here and it shows that patience pays dividends. A good motto for wildlife photographers

Wilmot: Another on the contender list. A red kite and a blue sky and you made the most of good conditions with this shot and a good composition to boot.

Wollyback: Two magnificient looking puffins and another contender giving my own preference for foreground blur which is well used here to concentrate attention on the puffins.
