Dear Dyxumers,

How many times did it happen that you took excellent photo with high chances of winning a DPC and then suddenly it turs out that somebody else presented his/her killer shot which gets all the points leaving nothing for you? Thsi was one of such situations: almost all points got split among two photos leaving all the remaining shots looong behind.

It was really fascinating to count votes you casted in this DPC: which photo will win? Votes on page #1 favoured photo #1 and so did votes on page #2 although the difference was not huge. And then suddenly on page #3 everything changed. Photo #2 got a real boost of points, jumped to the first position, and did not give up the place even on page #4 (where it slightly lost again). Ehh, but who could resist those big blue eyes :

As usual the winner will get his own unique, beautiful, and shiny Golden Dyxum Patch.

This time the Honourable Mention goes to one photo only (because there was really only one runner-up):


"A touch of green" by sue





Congratulations to the Great Two and thank you all for voting and participation in this DPC.

Happy shooting,
MiPr

Outstanding shots! I voted for both of these photos, and I think it really was a toss up between the two. Congrats to diagaz72 for winning this DPC.

Congratulations to both. I love the composition and feel of sue's shot in particular.

My spider shot was strangely less popular than these beauties

Congrats to the winner - sorry that I didn't vote on this one, time slipped by I'm afraid. As soon as this shot was posted it was the winner in my eyes... the moment is just beautiful and the processing compliments it perfectly. Great job
