Thanks Carolyn,

Had I been on a tree, I would have probably fallen down all cold and numb before I captured this shot.
I waited for ages for the right figure to show up in the frame.
Unfortunately the only people were teenagers returning from school...
I was waiting for an old lady or grandpa, but this little fella on a bright bike works fine too (IMHO, of course!). Couldn't wait any longer because my wife was yelling from the kitchen that the lunch was ready.

I took this shot from the balcony in my apartment. The blocks of flats were built in the 60-ties and oads of trees were planted between them, so now it looks like a park.

I am determined to get that "old grandma with a dog" shot one day...

Thanks again!

I think this shot is great Robert. The grandma with a dog might have been cool, too, but with the cyclist, the wheels match the trees giving the picture that extra togetherness. Nice job!

Cathy :)

Heather and Dolores.
Thank you very much. I really value your opinions. And I am so grateful to hear words of praise from other phothographers, like yourselves...

Yes, this month was particularly good for me. I placed a couple of finalist images and this second place one.
Definitely feel better now, since last month was a total disaster....

Thanks again, girls!
