POTM April 2009

I am pleased to present the Dynax Digital Photo of the Month (POTM) for April 2009.

After careful consideration of almost 50 nominees we have selected bigdazzler's photograph as the POTM.

Congratulations bigdazzler.

The moderator team wish to thank everyone for posting so many great photographs on Dynax Digital. Traditionally we post five runners up together with the winner. However this month we had four ties, therefore I have posted a total of six runners up, which are shown below and listed in no particular order.

Thanks to all and keep posting great pictures.

AScot. (On behalf of the Moderators).

Congratulations Big Dazzler. When I first saw this image, I thought that it looked like a winner, well done. Also thanks to the moderators for selecting one of mine as a runner up. That in itself has made my day. Also congratulations to the other runners up, well done to all.

Great choice judges - that image and the set with it really  stood out in terms of quality and ability to inspire.

Well done to ALL of you - I see I've been missing a number of great shots being put up with only making the odd visit. That is a great one for the winning shot for sure Bigdazzler :)

Note to self; must try harder to visit more often.

Thanks all for the inspirational shots you all put up :)
