Monthly Photo Competition – February 2012

  1. Number 1, 2, 4 and 5 are all beautiful photos.

    But Photo 03 by Johan van der Westhuizen gets my vote.
    Not only is it beautifully composed, but it is FULL of character. Full marks from me, and it gets my vote.

  2. Number 4 –  Margherita Introna, timing, how often do you get to take a shot like this? The other photo’s are great, but I love photos that you can only take once and that makes it unique.
