Well done zubbuz, voted for the skull in both rounds.

I thought I may of cracked the top three with my cheesy ring shot, but there is always next month.
Cheers Bish - I have to say that I really liked your ring shot except for one detail... I thought it's use on the (I'm assuming) 550Ds manual did not entirely fit with the shot - that being said, it was certainly a unique take on that shot :P

that was the plan, it was the section about flash too lol
C&C always welcome. If you want to try re-editing any of my shots, feel free.

As much as I liked your shot, Bish, similar photos had been posted before by, I think, Chelie (before she was crowned Queen Chelie) and either Tarty or Mariuccias. That may well have been before you joined the Forum and so you weren't to know but it may well have affected the votes you got. :/
I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.

Nice work Zubbuz and congrats.  I was showing my GF photos of this POTM contest and pointed out to her the shot of the skull was probably "Zubbuz's", some guy from England.  Not sure if you are from England, but that is the impression I get from your posts.  Guess the same can be said as to why I thought the shot was yours (the skull). 

Snapper, nothing to take away from Zubbuz because I voted for both of your shots in the first round, I did vote for yours in the final round.  It's a great photo.

Well done both of you.
