Congratulations to our first competition winners last month and a big thank you to everyone who took part.

In first place with 9 votes was @Nick L with his very atmospheric shot "Monsters on the Quay" taken at Poole Harbour, Dorset, UK.
In second place with 7 votes was @PKM-UK with the very beautiful Sumatran Tiger Kasarna, taken at Chester Zoo, Chester, England.
In joint third place with 6 votes was @Hali with her very creative and eye bending macro abstracts shot.
In joint third place with 6 votes was @Dean Wilson with a stunning landscape possibly shot in his home state of Oregon, USA. Please correct me if I'm wrong Dean!

Hi Tim,

Our warm congratulations to Nick for winning the May competition (a superb image which got our vote!).


Another fun theme this month, with our entry being a recent capture from Chester Zoo, Chester, England.

(Shot raw and processed with DxO PL Elite/ Nik Collection and Adobe LrC/ PS with Tony Kuyper Panels).

Red Fox siblings play fighting.
Unfortunately I didn't get too many opportunities to capture this kind of action and all too often the evening light forces compromises on shutter speed vs ISO. It's a 50% crop of the original CRAW.
