POTM May 2009

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

After careful consideration of over 60 nominees we have selected Fother's photograph as the POTM.

Congratulations Fother.

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 which are shown below and listed in no particular order. This month it would have been nice to post all 18 as there were so many excelent and diverse shots.

Umm - Wow! Wasn't expecting that. I never got around to voting for the POTM this month as I'd been held up over the weekend with looking after Alec, so it's kind of ironic that a portrait of him got the nod! I'm over the moon with that :D

The runner-up photos are all wonderful, so I'm proud to be listed alongside them. The nominations this month were incredible - a huge number of brilliant photos on the boards, and I think the standard is getting better all the time!
