    A lot of good entries, I especially liked the lightning strikes.

    Wow. Thanks for sharing these. While they are all amazing, I find #35 (the cock fighters) particularly arresting -- the light, the perfectly stopped action -- among a group of perfect photos, that one stood out for me.

    The big storm cell was awesome, but I have to agree with Elise, the kids playing with their roosters is almost 3D. I love it.

    Great stuff.

    Quite a few are 'right place at right time' sort of shots, but even so, getting the shot in those circumstances still takes skill and no doubt for many the photographer increased their chances of capture by use of background knowledge gained in observation, few look posed, although the aforementioned #35 possibly is one.

    Fascinating reading about them too.

    Really amazing! Shadowman, thank you for sharing.

    After seeing this we have two optins:
    A) Okay, I'll never do it. I resign, I'll only take smiley pictures of me, friends and family from now on.
    B) Hard work, hard work, I can do it! You can do it! Yes, we can. Ops, sorry, I'm not sure if political propaganda is allowed =D

    Awesome; thank for posting this.

    The quality of #3, the bee photo isn't great but the CONCEPT is brilliant. We're beekeepers and I've seen hundreds of photos and never seen one from the bottom-up perspective.

    For me, I choose picture #9 - A wrinkle in time. It is definitely one the best!

    When looking at all of them, I feel very, very small.

    Thanks for the info!
