This image is absolutely incredible in its execution, and I was CERTAIN it would be in top three - if not a win! Congrats to you though - I think it's just amazing.

Re: The 6th Runner-Up (7th Place) in the 2011 Photograph of the Year Contest

While I agree that the image is amazing, I was surprised it was even accepted

"Submitted photographs must not be heavily manipulated (minor edits like color correction are ok, but things like selective color, image stitching, HDR images, Orton effects "

IMO there was a lot of heavy manipulation to create this image.

Again I am not knocking the image...it is tremendous and well executed.

Re: The 6th Runner-Up (7th Place) in the 2011 Photograph of the Year Contest

I might beg to differ on how much this would be "manipulated" agiledogs - as there is a whole series on how someone can create such an image - and it had nothing to do with post-processing.

It's all in its execution - which is fabulous and probably requires MANY attempts:
