 The APME has honored the above photograph as the National Memeber Photo of the Month for March 2012.

Thanks to Dan Marschka at the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era for judging this month. Here is what Dan had to say about the winning image:

"I kept going back to the rodeo photo because it was a complete, unique image - from the planning, capture, to the final edit and composition. This is a moment that captivates the viewer because it is peak action and energy wonderfully composed. All of the visual elements work with this photo beyond the subject matter of the assignment. The image would look good big on page one, or in a frame on our wall."

Below is the link to all images entered for March and the winner is slide #49:
