    hehe, I loved the leopard picture and those monkeys are cool too - they seem like those on-lookers in a forum fight between noobs and 'super users'

      I can't see the "noob" anywhere. Seems that the leopard in that pic ate the "noob" :P

        Ah ok, that's interesting, i'm surprised that pic wasn't in the top 10, it was better than the sand dunes one imo *yawn

          The Namibian sand dunes pic was boring as well as the "sad clown" one. Neither had any sense of genuine composition. The Namibian one was typical point and shoot photography along a coastline while the "sand clown" one was a done up monkey with nothing to provide balance or contrast or for that matter to tell a real story. The photographer could have used elements in the background with a less blurred focus to do better storytelling - such as the image sharpening the focus on the woman and perhaps making the woman as much of a victim as the monkey in the mask.

          Other than these two images, the other 8 are very good.
