Of all my submissions for the month I was actually surprised to see this one take home the prize. I don't know about anyone else, but I find it hard to predict my own winners. Often the photos that I think are winners...don't win. It is still an honor to be selected no matter which one was chosen. #8709

I like it. I agree with you though that picking your own winners can be difficult. Too subjective maybe. I enter a yearly contest here where I work, and my photos that I think are best rarely win while others I didn't expect to sometimes do.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
