An unique portrait... I especially like the "metalic" feel to it...

Totally great photo MAK, and it scored well enough to keep you out of those frilly panties.

What can I say other than Congratulations MAK! Wasn't the landslide victory for you that I'm sure many where expecting and you were right, I needed a PB to get you.

No wonder I never saw this as yours, was looking for an HDRI landscape lol. You certainly captured the moment here m8 - congrats (honestly!)

Colchester Zoo, unfortunately this chimp is very old and not in the best of health, he is the one that is always inside rocking himself against the bars. He just looked at me like this, I had to shoot him.

Severely underrated IMHO. I expected to see this in the #1 spot. Beautiful work.

This was an instant fave the moment I saw it. Congratulations! so close to the top10. Since they started announcing it monthly, this was one of the most enjoyable free studies to vote on in recent memory.
