Rooftops Photo Contest Winners

Thank you to all the photographers that shared their rooftop photos in the photo competition, there were some amazing and creative shots. A big thank you to guest judges Wendy and Tyler. A few years ago they sold their belongings and gave up our former professions to take photos of families while traveling the world. Their journeys have been overwhelmingly rewarding, despite having their camping gear stolen in Costa Rica and accusations of drug trafficking in New Zealand. They bring their two kids along with them, and their homeschooling includes visiting sites, trying ethnic foods (Japan has the strangest ice cream flavors), and meeting people from all over the globe. They are still reeling from the fact that their work has been featured on Oprah, The Today Show and in the New York Times. We love to take photos, camp, hike, and bathe elephants in Sri Lanka.

Lee Bennett
Grand Jury Winner

“This is a spectacular wildlife shot. The background of the distant trees and branches might have been too busy if not for the perfect softening effect of the shallow depth of field. The backlighting was really key here in the way that it lit the dust in the darker areas around the zebras’ feet to provide needed contrast. Gorgeous.” – Michael Snell

Ani Pandit
Runner Up

“The texture and color contrast really make this image special. The zigzagging composition draws the eye in, but it’s the warm/cool balance of the oranges and blues that really sing. An image that could have easily been over saturated is, here, subtle and balanced and rich.” – Michael Snell

Mark Bridger
Runner Up

“The atmospherics are beautiful in this nicely seen shot. The mist not only creates a lot of interest with the beams of light coming through the trees, but it simplifies the scene into clean, flat layers of color. The buck is perfectly positioned to fill that space in the right side and draws the eye back into the frame by its gaze. ” – Michael Snell
