    Default Winner Chosen - November 2011 - Admin's choice - Image of the month

    Hi members,

    In case you are new around here this is where the Admin (me) chooses one excellent photo each month from all the photos nominated by other members during that month in the Member's monthly choice forum.

    Just so it's clear, the photo I choose is not necessarily the best one of the month. I've come to realize it's not really logical to pit images from totally different genres against each other. That's why there are categories in photo contests. My goal is to simply choose an excellent photo and talk about why I think it rocks.

    This month's choice is Fight Club! by Lizardqing

    I chose this image for several reasons:

    1 - Timing/Decisive moment. You gotta have a quick trigger finger to catch a moment like this or you will miss it. We've all missed fab opportunities like this, or misframed opportunities like this; good on Lizardquing for this fab capture.

    2 - Composition - I really like the composition here. It is especially impressive given the speed needed to catch this image. I really like the faun at the right side as well as the position of the trees.

    3 - Exposure/lighting/colour - Exposure looks very good here and could easily have been missed given the lighting. Good choice of shutter-speed to keep things fairly sharp but still reveal motion in the deers' front legs. Lovely colour palette as well. The lighting is wonderful in this image, good on Lizardqing for being there early enough to capture.

    For all these reasons, this is my choice for image of the month. Since we all have opinions, some members may disagree with my choice. That's cool but THIS thread is not the place for debate over my pick, NOR is it the place to further critique the image. The purpose here is to suggest strong elements in the photo that we may learn from.

    Congrats again Lizardqing for capturing this wonderful moment!
