Just in case anyone missed this...

I was just looking at the National Geographic photo contest winners and saw this image of the Matterhorn as an honorable mention... so cool...

Beautiful pic, but a shame it only received honorable mention. The picture that won wasn't too bad, but I thought there were better ones that looked less altered and true to form.

Maybe I just "don't get it" but that HM doesn't do much for me.

The couple of nature shots, though, do it for me. The one with mama lion escaping with her newborn is a pretty amazing shot.

The shot below is also very artistic; I like it a great deal.

To me, this image portrays an inexplicable mood - a seemless juxtaposition of elements of deep sorrow, tearful joy, and timelessness.

It is also interesting how the artist acheived scale - we sense the elephant is huge, as are the trunks and roots of the trees - yet, how has his technique made this apparent?



Matt, I'm curious, where did you find the exif data? Thanks.
