Well done Mike.

Such an awesome shot. I was just in the newsagent and it wasn't out yet, have to wait a couple of days I guess. Looks really good anyway.

I know a certain Mike who's got the cover shot for the next issue of that very same magazine. :D

Got to see it last week, and it looks great. I'll post a picture when the mag's officially out. :blink:

Mike,

Sorry to ask you this, because I don't have a copy of the magazine.

Is this the issue with my Leopard Seal picture in it? It's a Seal playing with its freshly caught penguin. If so, then I would love to see the PDF.

Thanks,
Andre

I have been to Yap two years ago, so I know how your mail system works :blush:

Antarctica has been the best thing I have done so far. And I must admit, it was scary to see the Leopard Seal underwater. Almost three meters big.

Hi Andre,

Your photo with the leopard seal is in the same issue of the magazine, in the new competition section for the readers' choice of outstanding photos.

BTW, it was one of my favourite shots at the CTS competition this year. I think I gave it the top spot when judging the entries.
