Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "Reynisdrangar" by madspeteriversen

"This image caught my eye and spoke to me in so many dimensions. I enjoy that the photographer has done a wonderful job of taking the viewers eye and masterfully leads it around and through this image. The black sand in the foreground does not allow the viewers eye to leave the composition. At the same time the photographer uses a shutter speed that is not too long nor too short creating just the right amount of motion in the water. The composition allows for the viewer to remain in the image by not cutting any of the rocks that our eyes enjoy as we drift around from foreground to background. The detail in the cool tonality of the highlights and shadows led me to select this images as the Grand prize winner!" - Ken Sklute

Congratulations Honorable Mention "Dreamland" by saintek

"A beautiful image that allows the viewer to float into this very strong composition of a magical light and meteorological experience. I appreciate the difference in tone as your eye is driven from the rolling waves of fog fill this valley but yet drives us home to view the visible farm that is brought to become the center of interest." - Ken Sklute

Congratulations Runner Up "Virginia Water" by uniquephotoarts

"A wonderful moving landscape image captured in a traditional, timeless manner. The soft, flowing falls command yourattention and are complemented by the secluded secondary falls inside the center womb of rocks. To finish this awesome image, one can appreciate the touch of autumn sprinkled throughout the image giving it a colorful yet subtle life." - Ken Sklute

Congratulations Runner Up "Sand and Sea" by diversionphotography

"This haunting beachside image draws the viewer in from fist glance. The soft muted tones of the sand and sky are a beautiful compliment to one another. The detail of the sand flow leads your eye into the ghostly soft moving water. The final part of this tranquil experience is how nicely the water line mimics the jagged soft clouds in a complementing shape." - Ken Sklute

Congratulations Runner Up "In the Hades Kindgom" by jmecs

"Beautiful detail in this nicely composed monochromatic capture that welcomes the viewers eye all around the image from the walk down the pier, up into the movement in the sky and returning through the partially submerged rowboat. " - Ken Sklute
