Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "15" by AlexanderGornikiewicz

"What a beautiful capture! This looks like an angel or a dancer. Very elegant and the colors are lovely. This must have taken Alexander many shots in order to get this particular moment. Congratulations on a spectacular macro water drop!" - Laurie Rubin

Congratulations Runner Up "crystal clear mk2 " by OliverSchleinLichtbilder

"Simplistic and elegant. This is an example of how you can take something as small and basic as a dandelion seed with a single water droplet and get a very pleasing and lovely image. Shooting white on white is a real challenge and Oliver managed to capture this beautifully. Well done!" - Laurie Rubin

Congratulations Runner Up "the Lamp" by Joerg

"Here is another example of a high speed photograph with a few water droplets to get a result that is beautiful and whimsical. This looks like the title, “The Lamp”. The tones and colors are very well captured." - Laurie Rubin

Congratulations Runner Up "Gearhead" by bruceclement

"The gears reflected in the water droplets remind me of a M.C. Escher drawing and really caught my eye. The fact that these water droplets are hanging on a copper wire at a diagonal is captured so well and makes for an interesting composition. Very unique!" - Laurie Rubin
