Vote For The Photo Of The Month: August 2013

  1. Winner for me : #2 – wow – Cant keep my eyes of that image. Great shot.

    To the owner of #5 – great, great great shot! –
    awesome comp, B&W works very well. thanks for sharing.

  2. David van der Want. Clever eye for composition-circles, spirals, squares and plains-with the human figure giving an extra-geometric perspective and the “Square Plein” sign for wit.

  3. #2 Because this is more than a good surf photo. It’s an epic composition with so much movement, scale, colour, drama…
    It also cost much more, in terms of effort, to capture than the other shots here – good as they are.

      1. Hi there, correct – Judging by the email address used, it doesn’t appear to have been Grier that posted the comment, but we suspect the person who posted it may have accidentally typed Grier’s name into the nickname field as well – it’s happened before! Nothing malicious here.
