Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "Iconic bridge " by PetarBphotography

"This is my overall pick. I love the "life" in this shot, the color, the movement, the sparkle, what Jay Maisel refers to as a gesture. Compositionally sound and contrast are lovely. The arch used as the frame makes me feel like I am anchored as a viewer in this scene. I also love the more natural chiseled stone texture of the arch vs the modern structure of the bridge. Very nicely done!"- April Bryant

Congratulations Runner Up "FONDO " by nikosladic

"This photo is magnificent! I love all of the interesting layers and textures of each. The point of view perfectly leads your eye from the stones of the stream all the way to the mountains."- April Bryant

Congratulations Runner Up "El arco del rey " by JoseDRiquelme

"Love the moodiness of this image! The long exposure smoothing of the water works very well in contrast to the rough textures of the rocks. Darker tones with a spot of light perfectly in a rule-of-thirds prominent position are very eye-pleasing. Beautiful!"- April Bryant
