AP Member Photo of the Month for August 2011



The APME has honored the attached photograph as National MBR Photo of the Month for August 2011.

Thanks to Marshall Gorby at the Springfield News-Sun for judging this month.

What Gorby had to say about the winning image:

"This image, to look at, is an interesting photo. When I saw it, I thought, what's so great about this guy jumping out of an airplane? Then I read the caption. Immediately I wondered what was going through the mind of the man who was falling to his death and what was the photographer was thinking as he took the photo(s)? In my opinion all photos should make you think. This one does just that.”

Below is the link to all images entered for August and the winner is slide #25:
