I've always loved this image of yours, along with so many of your images. Congratulations on honorable mention this month.

I'd like to hear from the "judges" why this is only an honorable mention. This image is worthy of publication in a magazine. It exemplifies peak action and clearly is a unique capture of something that we just don't get to witness very often, if ever. Marsel, again, this is an outstanding image. Congrats on the award, however, I believe it should have received a higher award.

Thanks for all the kind words! :-)

@ Michael: this image is going to be published as a double page spread in the July issue of Digital SLR User Magazine in the UK. :-)

@ Dawn: what do you mean with keywords? Do you see keywords?

Sorry Dawn, I now see the keywords as well. I can't remember entering them myself, so I don't know what happened.

Thanks for the update. Glad to see it worked out the way it should have. Congrats on the publication. It's obvious that Namibia has been very fruitful for you.
