Which Takes Your Fancy?

Take a look at

Some stunning photography, some not so good, it all depends on your particular taste.

The Orangutan should appeal to those who like 'cute' pictures. My favourite is the image of the pilgrims at the Maha Kumbh Mela. So much to see from such a marvellous viewpoint.

I think I agree with you on your choice Alan. I also like the two mantises (or is that manti?) displaying. Cutesy animal shots do nothing for me; the reportage shots are more my cup of tea.

Tough choices, I think the skiers lined up is mine.

I like the skiers too, its simplicity and its humour.

I double-took when I saw the Sparkle Baby image.  It looks uncannily like my daughter, even moreso because a couple of years ago she did something similar when there was a vintage day at Wisley and they were offering free makeovers:

My favourite is probably the praying mantises, it has almost a comic feel to it. Coming a close second is the photo of the polar bear, it seems to accentuate the isolation of  the animal.
