You have not made it easy for me this week. There are some wonderful captures here and all of them were very soothing.

Wally and Willie and It's MY Box capture the cats' personalities very well.

In the moment... managed to capture a magical silence as if time stood still. The backlighting is perfect and the clarity of the wings is almost surreal. Kevan did a great job with this one.

Pontoon, Dawn at Fort Monroe and Cold Morning in La Jolla are outstanding images with very soothing colors, wonderful flow quality and excellent composition. I can easily imagine myself at any of these spots.

The bold colors in Islands offer great contrast to the silhouettes of the trees in the foreground, the islands at the center of the frame and the shadows of the mountains in the distance. Don had a great vision when he composed this shot.

I expected to see a number of landscapes with a topic like serenity, but Maureen outdid herself with Newborn Slumber. The serenity captured in this photo can only truly be appreciated by someone who has either photographed newborns or has had one of their own. There are few moments of serenity with kids and this captures one of those moments beautifully.

Vancouver Evening captures the beauty of the sun's rays as they shoot through the clouds. The subtle lens flare adds to the effect and I imagine myself on a lawn chair with my wife and daughter by my side as we watch the sun disappear behind the clouds. Beautiful exposure.

Disney World Morning hits close to home because we are going there in two weeks. We love Disney and have been there often. I hope to find this as serene in two weeks as it is in this photo (although not likely).

Zen of Dog brought a smile to my face. It's as if the dog is looking into the snow waiting for his owner to come home from a long day of hunting, trapping or logging.

I would love to go to Pangong Tso Lake. 'Nuff said. What a beautiful place. The colors are perfect and the water looks very inviting.

Dunes Near Yuma is a lovely landscape. The smooth lines, cool colors and clear skies really make the image pop. The way the light dances off the sand and creates the harsh shadows really emphasizes the depth of the landscape and the natural beauty of the sand dunes.

Once again, thank you all for the wonderful photos!

...and the winner is....Newborn Slumber by Maureen Souza.

First runner up is Kevan's In the moment...

Honorable mentions to Engineersix for Pontoon, Scatterbrained for Dawn at Fort Monroe and Frank H for Cold Morning in La Jolla.

Thank you to everyone and I look forward to seeing the next challenge from Maureen.
