Cindy Lynch, of St. Louis, MO, wins this month with her Orangutan portrait Ruby.

Our judge, Arabella Dane, tells us “A remarkable image of an endangered species. The exposure, the lighting and the angle of view capture Ruby with clarity and sensitivity. All details are sharply in focus. The eyes are well lit yet discreetely emphasized. The highlights in her red hair, and on her face - so creased and wrinkled - give this image a special aura. The positioning of this Orangutan in the format and the simple framing (black with a white line inner border) add distinctive elements.
