Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "Holiday Inn Atrium (Black and White) " by SeowSweeMeng

"This image of a hotel lobby is both photographed and processed beautifully.  The structure creates beautiful symmetry its own, but the photographer did a fantastic job of composing in such a way as to anchor it, include balance, focus, and the right use of contrast, light and mid-tones to pull the eye through the image over and over again.  This is just an incredibly compelling image and is very deserving of first place in this competition." - Lisa Langell

Congratulations Runner Up "Gollinger Mill " by guenther710

"I love this image not only for it’s classic composition, but for the photographer’s smart use of foreground, leading lines, rule of thirds, and light to pull my eye gradually through the image.  The repetition of yellow and rust in the foreground leaves and the yellow tree behind the rusty orange building was a smart choice.  The harmonious greens in the image, softly lit to perfection, keep me in the image and give me visual “texture,” that I really enjoy.  This is a beautiful image.  " - Lisa Langell

Congratulations Runner Up "Windmills in the fog " by ryanminion

"The windmills against the foggy trees and dark foreground are so very appealing.  I love the smart use of contrast in the processing of this image.  It also has a wonderful blend of softs in the sky and foggy trees slightly blurred in the background juxtaposed with the sharp and contrasted blades of the windmills.  The photographer also took great care to be positioned in such a way that the windmills are not distractingly merging with one another.  The wise use of negative space and rule of thirds made this image stand out. This is an excellent image and caught my eye immediately." - Lisa Langell
