David Gray Canada Canon 60D Processed in Photoshop CS5 Thank you for voting for my photo. I love it when I have the opportunity to photograph fog because fog creates a feeling of mystery. On this particular day I was blessed with light rays shining through the fog;

Beautiful and so peaceful. This is an outstanding capture of a young red fox in the wild. His dreamy and blissful expression makes this a very telling (and so sweet!) portrait. The lush, wild forest and its naturally diffused light give this photograph a dimension of reality and a wonderfully serene atmosphere. I feel as though I am on the ground with mud on my knees in the silence of this photographer’s hide. A rare and worthy winner of this competition. Congratulations!
Wow...thank you so much for choosing my photo. It means a lot to me, because this is one of my favourite photo & it shows a very special moment of my life. My name is Anne Geier & I took the photograph with a Nikon D90 & a 70-300mm lens this summer in a forrest, where I am often walk through with my dog. One day I noticed a fox family. Since this day I often visited this place to meet this really impressing animals again. One of the foxes became a little bit calm and i called him "Stritzi".
Thank you! This picture was taken with a Canon 50D+85 mm 1.8 USM. It is one of my favourite pictures. The actually colour of the horse is white.

With a little thought, great bird photos can be taken anywhere. One of the best tips is to shoot from the bird's eye level, as illustrated by our winning photo, in which the low shooting angle transports the viewer right into the duckling's world. Shallow depth-of-field draws the attention to the duckling itself, but the mirrored shape of its mother wrapped around it in the background conveys the theme of 'protectedness' to perfection.
Thank you for the Winning Prize. In Southern California, Spring showers lasted almost a week straight. It was the first day after the rain, the Mallard hen took her ducklings out for a walk at the local pond. I layed in the wet mud on my belly with my Nikon D300 and a 500mm lens. The baby duck kept walking closer, with mama cautiously following behind. The extremely shallow depth-of-field was the result of short distance between the ducks and the camera. Andy Nguyen.
