Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "Artistic earth" by Shabogi

Artistic earth by Shabogi - Earth Day 2017 Photo Contest

"A really unique work and for me the deserved winner of this contest. It shows the diversity our planet has to offer and why taking photographs is so important. There are so many people out there, who don't even know, that places like this exist. We need to go out there and look for those unique locations and perspectives and preserve all those moments for the people who don't have the chance to witness something like this with their own eyes." - Simon Roppel

Congratulations Runner Up "Gullfoss Sunset " by Tor-Ivar

Gullfoss Sunset by Tor-Ivar - Earth Day 2017 Photo Contest

"Even if this location is a really over captured place, the Artist achieved in my eyes. Especially from locations of which you might find thousands of photographs it's even harder to create an "eye catcher" that takes your attention immediately. There are so many possible compositions at this waterfall and this one just works so nice." - Simon Roppel

Congratulations Runner Up "Bear Grass In The Misty Forest" by DaveCornelison

Bear Grass In The Misty Forest by DaveCornelison - Earth Day 2017 Photo Contest

"I've chosen that shot because the Artist presented a completely new vision of showing a forest scenery. A big criterion I have is, that photographers try new things and don't copy compositions they might have seen before." - Simon Roppel
