Yes, this was a last minute entry upon returning from a five day sail with skin burning. I had promised to clean my sensor but unable because of time. The shot was done and the best images had that sensor devil you see on the p.o. lettering on the bottom: right before the barcode. Well this blot was right atop the white of the envelope and so the best images were discarded and this one employed. Happy to see it in the top ten as the competition was very fierce with many a lovely image. The catchlight on the right eye is the distracting element and it was corrected for the other images with light adjustment. But, basic editing means we stand by all imperfections.

Nicely done, Daniel. This one stood out, as yours usually do, for its distinctly different "perspective" on the challenge :-)

First, congrats for your outstanding picture and your overall great work, your are in my favourite list.

Just a question: The people that are complaining about dust, why they do not use olympus (or panasonic now)? I can read in your comments that it IS a big issue for You.

I understand that You have made some investment but would You have changed your mind if somebody told/showed to You before about the problem of the dust?

B. regards and keep me happy sharing your photos :)

I loved this one! You did a fantastic job! I didn't notice one single imperfection. My envelopes are never perfectly clean anyway :) This is definitely worthy of a front page spot!
