Great idea on the Prize, Bjorn. I'll have to submit something now to make you swallow that shipping fee :-).

Thanks cujo for submitting an entry. I expect everyone to interpret the theme in their own way, and your submission is a very personal yet relatable example of how one could interpret it. Thank you for sharing it.

saloncuts, congrats on your first post. I would recommend using auto and P mode for anyone new to photography, this will able you to see what exif the camera used in different situations/lighting and is part of the learning curve.

Cheers

Thanks to everyone who posted an entry this month, I really appreciate your efforts.

Now, about the prize, the McNally book. I won't be sending it out, not yet anyway. I had hoped for 20 entries and believe getting that number of submissions is still possible with a large community such as Camera Labs. The prize still stands for April, and probably May after that if we don't make it this month. Do you want the book? Then grab your camera and shoot a picture for April's theme "Juxtaposition".
