Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "Morning Rise" by PhotoWorks

Morning Rise by DonHoekPhoto - Peaceful Sunrises Photo Contest

"An early morning sunrise breaking through darkling skies, after what seems to have been a somewhat baleful storm. The bridge spans the darkness with its golden thread lighting the way to a slumbering and peaceful San Francisco. It is that moment when there is a tension between what has taken place before and the hope of harmony to come that makes this such a strong and striking image." - Conrad Hechter 

Congratulations Amateur Winner "Sunrise at More London" by geminatrix

Sunrise at More London by geminatrix - Peaceful Sunrises Photo Contest

"An unusual angular and urban interpretation of the breaking day. It captures the essence of a modern London with old and new juxtaposed in the early morning hue. Beautiful and dramatic!" - Conrad Hechter 

Congratulations Runner Up "Stand Alone...long distance" by CanadianOutlaw

Stand Alone...long distance by CanadianOutlaw - Peaceful Sunrises Photo Contest

"Desolation and yet inner peace are captured in this morning moment. An image that makes you want to be physically present to experience it with all your senses…and to extend it for as long as possible. " - Conrad Hechter
