....heart of a Lion by foureyes
By a lot of standards, ....heart of a Lion by `foureyes is a famous photograph. It is the Grand Prize Winner of the National Geographic Ultimate Photo Contest 2009 and has almost 10,000 favorites on dA. It is an excellent example of an amazing photograph and an admirable photographer receiving much deserved attention. I think the suggester gives an even more important reason: "This is not just a photograph but something that gives us hope just by seeing it and knowing that the man struggled and fought for his life no matter how hard it was."

Waiting for Another Tree by saabie
For Waiting for Another Tree by ~saabie the suggester writes: "This photo depicts something that is artistically underestimated day by day - a rail bridge showing itself in a lonely, timeless manner along with a tree which is just as desperate-looking. Not to mention the title - a chill came over me when I saw this, though I never noticed before even if I personally can see the bridge in the city everyday."

Untitled by
Japanese Decorative Coloured by *huanyuu From the suggester:This has to be one of the most fantastic artworks I have ever seen. The level of detailing (always so impressive on every work by :devhuanyuu:) is stunning and totally eye-catching, and the scene itself, the way everything flows so smoothly, the serene expression of the characters... I can just sit here and admire it the whole day and I am sure I will always find a new detail there to admire which I haven't noticed before. Superb.
