The Judges of the Cafe Choice Award are pleased to announce the presentation of this highly rated award:









is awarded to member



BACKBEAT

for his image

"Cousins"









From the Judges:

"This very powerful shot seems to show not only an immensely strong relationship between the two chimps but also their clear determination as they appear through the primeval, smoky background, embarking on an evolutionary phase that could lead who knows where.

Backbeat created the image by combining the cloudy background with a shot taken of captive animals and whilst the image might have minor flaws the judges considered that they were overcome by the amazing strength of the image and the way it provokes such a strong emotional response in the viewer." from the Judges.

Congratulations, Backbeat!

An award long overdue in my opinion. A superbly created image that hits the evolutionary spot in the brain.
Its an image that deserves to be seen by a wider audience and I hope that it has been entered in some big competition somewhere. A sure fire winner against ANY professional togs image.
I'm proud to be able to view and speak on the image

One of the most convincing pieces of photo-processing that I've seen. It has the look of a prehistoric scene.

Thank goodness Backbeat had the vision to realise what could be achieved when he saw the original shot, or none of us would have had the privelidge of seeing a most remarkable piece of photoshop imagineering which enhanced an already superb subject.

A fine addition to the "Cafe Choice Award" and as Brian says it should be seen by a far wider audience and sell in its millions.

Many congratulations Backbeat

Oh wow-so well deserved Phil!  I remember this amazing piece so well. It is the sensitive way it's been handled which got to me.

Ok, I SWEAR I posted in here...drat.  Anyhoo...congratulations!  I just love the lighting on the chimps and the treatment gives them the too infrequently felt freedom that we don't get to see in most pictures.

Supervision not nearly as cool as it sounds!
