The Photo Critic Shot of the Month competition for January was indeed a tough one. Our judges couldn't decide and we decided, what the heck, let's share it between all three finalists who were in contention! Looking at these great shots we are sure than non one would blame us for not being able to decide. The SOTM award goes to Nadia de Lange with "A man and his dog", Leon Pelser with "The story of my life" and Amy McGinley with "That Look".

The Photo Critic Shot of the Month competition for December goes to Danie Coetzee with his black and white photo, titled "Young Dreams". His honest image tells such an intimate story, which bagged him the coveted SOTM award. Well done Danie!
