Congratulations to tissa7 winner of the Canon printer, the limited edition Holga camera and the “Wildlife Photographer Of The Year” book by BBC:
“What could easily be a mundane image–a duck in the water– is transformed into a breathtaking work-of-art. The way the water slides over the duck’s neck and crystallizes a the beak draws me in. I feel as though I am right there, swimming alongside her in the cool water, crisp and refreshed. I love the way the photo gives a personality to both the duck and the water, showing how the two play together. Unlike many other images of wildlife I encounter, the image is like a painting–it’s beautiful enough that I’d hang it in my home.” – Justina
Congratulations to the following Runners Up:

“I’m a color lover. I can’t help but love this vast pink sky and this lonely elephant underneath it–it draws me in and makes me feel calm.” – Justina
