2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Hi Nick,

Great time-lapse video clip - I have a true-time video recording of same looking South towards the W'kloof ridge skyline, also about 2 years ago.

What was the total time of your clip (ie what is the time compression factor)?

There is something that looks like it could be a meteor entering from bottom left of screen at about 60% through the clip, except that the time duration would be way too long for a meteor (it has a nice long, straight streak upwards on three frames, but intervening frames of nothing).

Some of your other photos it would be interesting to talk about, particularly the 2 lions in Rietvlei reserve. ? I did not know they had lions, a cheetah or two I heard about (with cub I believe) but lions ??

Regards, "

If I recall correctly time compression is 3 minutes/second, one 10 second exposure taken every 15 seconds and played back at 12 frames per second.
The streak across the screen was an aircraft, it is intermittent because the light flashes and streaked because of the long exposure on each frame.
The lion at Rietvlei are just on the other side of the Delmas Road. There is no access for individual vehicles, but on one can visit them on the game vehicles from the coffee shop.
