Vote For The Photo Of The Month: May 2014

  1. 05 – John-Henry Bartlett. Fantastic capture that manages to submerge the viewer in the action.

    And if I could I would probably vote down 02. As cool as the amount of lightning and the reflection in the foreground is, I’m not a fan of the completely overcooked blending with halos forming everywhere.
