Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "Magic Mountain" by MargaretN

Magic Mountain by MargaretN - Pushing Limits Photo Contest

"From the pushing the limits perspective, just getting there must qualify. But the end result pushes this amazing image over the top for me. The exposure is smack on in what can be considered a very difficult scene to balance. The whites have detail intact as do the darker areas. Composition draws the eye appropriately to the meeting of peak and sky, where you get not only a sense of massive altitude, but an almost ethereal sense of earths fingers reaching into the heavens. Truly beautiful, and expertly balanced." - David Guy Maynard 

Congratulations Honorary Mention "Climbing at Cinque Torri" by jamesrushforth

Climbing at Cinque Torri by jamesrushforth - Pushing Limits Photo Contest

"If capturing a well balanced, and wonderfully composed image while hanging from the side of an extremely high cliff face isn’t pushing the limits, I am not sure what would be. Physical challenges aside, this image speaks well for itself. The composition, color and light balance work together to produce a captivating photo that both tells a story, and pleases the eyes." - David Guy Maynard 

Congratulations Runner Up "Dive, Dive, Dive" by Jamie-MacArthur

Dive, Dive, Dive by Jamie-MacArthur - Pushing Limits Photo Contest

"A different set of limits are being pushed in this fantastic example of masterful camera control. Proper focus, frozen and tack sharp fast moving subject at what is clearly high magnification, make this image stand out. As any bird photographer will tell you, there must be at least some element of patience and luck in timing with any extraordinary in-flight photo. But having the skills to catch that moment at optimal levels is the deciding factor. This is decidedly well done, majestic, and quite beautiful. " - David Guy Maynard

"Colorful, engaging, and beautiful. The somewhat shallow DOF works magic in this image, drawing the eye to the sharp and focused business end of this lovely creature. Well chosen angle, and impeccable timing make this a fantastic action nature image. Well done." - David Guy Maynard
