"We were instantly mesmerized by this portrait - not only because the look in the eyes of the model dragged us in, but also the shallow depth  of field and the composition with the surrounding light weight fabric which seems to be already around us giving us the feel of an intimate view. The fabric also does its job to soften the light even more." - Henrik Spranz and Perdita Petzl

"For us the management of the three zones - foreground, midground and  background - works perfectly. The visible movement of the water flowing  back into the sea using a little longer exposure drags us in to the  midground with its troubled water. But having the long pier as an anchor  gives the beautiful lit sky with its framing dark clouds the space it  deserves." - Henrik Spranz and Perdita Petzl

"This photo joined our shortlist instantly. The curves of the dunes lead  us into the scene in a perfect way and we love the fine textures in the  sand of the foreground. The compositions leads us directly to the fight  of the soft dune and flying sand against the dark sky with its  threatening clouds. We wonder if it would have made number one with a  less darkened sky - at least in this soft tones contest." - Henrik Spranz and Perdita Petzl
