Thank you to all participants. I enjoyed examining all of the entries over the past week.
Honorable Mentions in no particular order.
Alain Lestrade


Jola Dziubinska


Peter Schultz


Markus Grompe


Allen Hart



Third Place, Ken Zaret. An amazing sanctuary wedged into a cleft among mountain peaks. The lighting is particularly good emphasizing rugged remoteness.


Second Place, Walter O. Koenig. An ordinary structure shown from a different perspective. The composition is striking with precise alignment, water in the foreground, a spec of daylight in the distance and fog providing a ethereal quality.


The winner is Alain Lestrade. I am absolutely captivated by this photo every time I look at it. The bull fills the frame, depth of field and light emphasize the details of the face, chain, straps and nose ring. At first the halter with chain and studded strap appears so cruel but after examining the details and the demeanor of the bull maybe it is not. Congratulations Alain.

Good topic, we can do monochrome many times to come!

Great choice for the winner, certainly a very intriguing shot and technically excellent.

Dear friends,

This short message to tell you i'm a little bit late because I was travelling these days without my pbase password in mind...

I'm happy for the contest and the success of this photograph. Thank you for all. I took it in an agricultural exhibition (salon de l'Agriculture, in Paris). I hesitated between the image of an enchained prisoner or of a cruel pirate... The bull was around 1500kg (3300lbs?).

Soon, the next topic...

Best regards.
