Congratulations Grand Jury Winner “Lion King” by Fotostyle-Schindler

“The lion’s “expression” is what first drew me to this photograph. But the list and composition are perfect. And the tree in the background says Africa. I also love the mood created by the processing.”- Rick Sammon

Congratulations Amateur Winner “tiger couple” by robertelwancinega

Congratulations Runner Up “Jungle Eyes” by jennibrinkman

“I love animal photographs that have eye contact with the photographer – and viewer. The off-center composition is cool, but so is the shallow depth of field, which draws the viewer’s eyes even more toward the animal’s eyes.”- Rick Sammon

Michelle Cobble
Runner Up

” It’s a fun and dramatic shot at the same time. A tricky subject exposure wise, that was well captured and processed. Here, too, I like the animal’s “expression.” Good click!”- Rick Sammon
