Bob’s comments: “This is being in the right place at the right time and having a great camera. You can’t plan this picture.”

  1. All of the honorable mention pictures are very good. Most are awesome in fact. I know I wouldn’t have had the patience to get most of those shots. Good job to everyone

  2. i have never met any of these people b4. and i wasn’t even in the contest but honestly i think that ethere BROOK AND COLUBUS should win or BARRY HENRY AND LOUISIANA or KELLY KASSANDER OF MENQOUN WIS.

  3. excellent pictures and great comments. I love to take pictures of my horse and It is really hard to get just the right shot. Great job.

  4. I think that when magazines do things like this it keeps readers interested and you should continue and do more contest like this!
