Here it is...the long awaited return to the Thunderdome ways. In this corner we have a seasoned vet in the Thunderdome and that is 1074. In the other corner we have a Thunderdome rookie that just had to have a shot at the title. So with no more chatter I bring you the 1074 VS Bandmandq challenge with "Nature" as a topic.

Please vote early and often. Give the thread a bump and tell your friends that the Thunderdome is back in business.

Shot on top: 1074


Shot on bottom: Bandmandq

Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Congrats to both of you as these were two very nice shots. I watched the vote stay close but in the end we have a winner and that is 1074.

Good job you two and I hope this kicks of the rebirth of the Thunderdome.

Agree with Skippy...BOTH damn good shots.
I think it was as close to a coin flip as I have seen in a while.
Well done you guys.
