    This has been a difficult one for me. But here it is.

    Photo was taken in Leicester Square on 6th April 2007.

    These girls were on top of a 40ft building so had to zoom in using my new super doper lens.

    Hope it is on theme and you guys like it.

    Zone i will email you the original.

    Really like this one. Love the composisition, for me the building in the lower right leading my eyes up to the girls in the arc which they are diving.

    The fact there's not a cloud in the shot makes the girls stand out really well.

    I can only reiterate what others have said about composition, exposure and sharpness - nice one!
    This is going to be a really difficult month to judge - so much quality and variety in the shots.

    Bang on for the theme .. and sharp...that VR is working hard!

    Wish more of the building could show to emphasise the height but that is only nitpicking

    Very nice shot :thumbsup:

    Very nice. I Like the composition and the colours in this.

    The 70-300 VR is a cracker isn't it!

    Hi Zef. Thanks for your lovely comments. Yes this was hand held. By the time i took this one my hand had start to shake, cos the lens ain't half heavy.
