PHOTOS OF THE WEEK:
SEPTEMBER 1ST, 2016
Ahh, a new month, new photos, new winners to show you the amazing "Photos of the Week". I have searched for hours and hours and all over the internet, amateurs, professionals, and have found the best photos of the Week. I hope you enjoy these, and study them to see why they have become winners, and what you can do to become winners as well. Check these out:
I'm not sure if I've ever had a car in the "Photos of the Week", but check this photo out !! Is this just grab your eye? The color of the car, the background, the whole composition of this photo is amazing. And I know some work on the computer made this photo spectacular as well, but, it certainly made this a winner.
Congratulations. Photo by: Edward Saksenhaus

Once in a while you get a landscape photo that you say: Wow! Can that be for real? Then you carefully study it out, and see, oh, yeah ! It has to be up there, way up North, where there is the Northern Lights. I have always wanted to see those, and perhaps I will someday. But, for now, I will settle for great photographers capturing the beauty of the scenery like this with the Northern lights in the picture as well. Great timing, and great scenery.
Congratulations to: Manuel Cafini. Photo taken in Norway.

If I hadn't raised chickens before in my life, I would wonder if this animal was real. But, there are these kind of beautiful birds out there. And if you are familiar with birds in general, you know that the male bird is the more beautiful of the birds. The reason this photo was such a winning photo is you can tell that the photographer had to get down to the same level as the bird. That may have saved his life! Haha. Some roosters are mean. Congratulations to: Adriano Lompi
PORTRAIT OF THE MONTH
I look carefully for something really unique each month in selecting the "Portrait of the Month". Have you ever seen anything so precious? Truly heartwarming and certainly a winner. And for those who are portrait photographers, I think I will see some more photos like this, because it is just darling.
Congratulations to: Fatholy Mosa
Along with Cecilia Rojas Cespedes.

“The other night, while sleeping in the tent, I woke up several times, mainly because the wolves were making a lot of noise from a far distance—maybe because of the full moon or maybe because they were hunting,” explains Walkowski. “Due to the slow Internet access, I checked the weather at the visitor center the previous evening. The forecast for sunrise was very promising with clouds and rain. After not getting much sleep, I exited my tent and looked at the sky—the clouds were looking very promising. I left my camp around 4:30 a.m. and started driving towards my destination. Halfway through my trip, I noticed a pretty big gap on the horizon. That gave me hope for the sun to break through. I was debating between Moran and Lipan Point. Finally, I chose Lipan due to the strong wind that was also mixed with a bit of rain. As I arrived, several spectators were already sitting on the cliff, observing the sky, waiting for the sun to show its mighty colors. During the final sunrise moments, I started shooting the scene towards the sun, but quickly realized what was happening behind my back. The wind and rain started picking up as the sun was rising above the horizon. I turned and switched sides towards the canyon and nervously started setting up my tripod again for a panorama scene, which sometimes takes several minutes, especially when the ground is steep and uneven. Due to the strong side rain and cross wind I was nervously wiping my lens from the raindrops after each series of pano images. The scene was very intense and I was full of adrenaline. After panning my camera several times, the double rainbow and rain started moving away exposing different beauty of the canyon.”
I just love photos that are mysterious. This photo just does that to me. How long do you have to wait to get a photo like this? And where do you have to be to catch such a picture. Isn't it true that some of the best photos are captured by you being at the right place at the right time? Well this photo is certainly a winning photo because of that. I just love the mystery of this photo, and congratulations to this photographer.
