    Great pics this month guys. I thought this one would get a whole lot more entries, but the ones that did enter are really nice. Great job to everyone.

    Remember to include the post # and the photo # when voting.

    Having a tough time again this go round.
    I really liked the one of the young boy looking over the fence, but feel like it is too centered. A slightly better composition would have really sold me on that shot.
    I loved Chris' shot of both the deer and the lion.
    I absolutley love Cory's shot of the royal blue maccaw.
    My vote however goes to Blue this time for the tiger shot. It's a little centered as well, but it was tiger's that I was hoping to do well with for this go around and maybe it's just a little jealousy. It is a fantastic shot though.

    I really like the crop and how the blue just pops on the black background. Great shots by everyone.

    All nice pic's, but my vote goes to ThunderForce, pic #2. That Lion pic is awesome!
    The one RedTX posted of the little fella looking over the fence was a close one as well .

    I'm going to go with Red Tx's Photo of the Flamingo. I really love the monochromatic effect of the reds and how the eye stands out. This is a great photo-journalistic shot. It's "different". It's abstract!

    Second and tied are Moon Man's Tiger and Tom's Eagle followed by Cory's Macaw.

    As a matter of fact all of the shots are great.

    The flamingo just reached out and grabed me.....

    I think these little contest are really becoming a benefit to all of us in this forum.

    I've spent the past two weeks behind a Sinar 8X10 View Camera working on a Smithsonian Project...Yep, My beloved film again! Someones gotta keep it going! I hope to get back with the digital and do some fun stuff again soon.
    Heck! It's all fun!
