  • Wonderful portrait with expression, atmosphere and beautiful texture. I love the dark, the contrast and the black and white. You have succeeded in giving this gorilla so much pride and dignity. Very well done and congratulations, you win this round!

  • Lovely black bear mother feeding her twins and a very wild forest view. The low angle through the plants and wood make this extra wild. Well done indeed.

  • Thanks, I'm honored to get the award. I shot this last year at the Grand Canyon while on vacation. This little guy pop up over the cliff and stared at me long enough to get a couple photos of him before he decided to retreat. I used a Nikon D300 ISO 400 Nikkor lens 24-120 @52 mm f10 1/400s post-production in Photoshop using Alien Exposure 6. Thanks Again, Paul

  • This is a lovely landscape too, nice low light and snowy atmosphere which go so well with these bison. A great wildlife photo often puts the animal in its environment, you have done that very well here.

  • I am honored to receive this award. I took this with a Nikon 7100 and zoom lens, no filter. To avoid overexposure from the setting sun, I shot this from below, angling my camera upward. I adjusted exposure and cropped to 1X1 in the raw file using Capture NX-D. Thank you very much! Kelly
