2012 Animal Nominees!


Without question the strongest showing in the animal category, ever. I could only narrow it down to 236 images. This next round of judging is going to be brutal. We have all the nominees selected, its just a matter of getting all the bugs fixed, & hopefully Tigershark is working better now.

There are a LOT of pictures here, it will take about 20-40 seconds to load depending on your connection. Once you see the first image, you will need to press play to start. Enjoy!



I also decided to move a handful of the macro images into this category (I do this occasionally when I feel it better fits a different category). If yours did not make it, please do not be upset. Look at the ones that did and ask yourself why it made the cut. Try to figure it out. Also keep in mind, from these nominees, only 24 or so will make it to the next round.

I gave extra points for unique animals & stopping power (which images made me stop and really study it. I had to be extremely selective if it was a cat or dog shot because it seemed like most of the entries were of those 2 furry friends. :)

Here are the 3 images that I moved from the Macro Category:
