Thank you to all the photographers that shared their most unforgettable landscape image in the 5000 Dramatic Landscapes Photo Contest in collaboration with our friends at Creative Live.

"Congratulation to all the finalist in the 500 Dramatic Landscapes Photo Contest, superb images all-around. Picking just one winner doesn't seem fair as there were several images that I wavered back and fort between. In the end I came back to the image that struck me the most in my first run-through. After picking Leland Smoke and Mirrors, I did a little research and found that this home and lake reside in my home state of Washington. The home in the photo is currently available for rent to anyone looking for a weekend getaway cabin. While I've never visited this lake I'll have to put it on my itinerary for the next time I'm out on the Olympic Peninsula." - John Greengo

"Congratulation to b2bjacks and your photo Leland Smoke and Mirrors my pick for winner of 500 Dramatic Landscapes Photo Contest. A sublime photo that has a perfect blend of both soft and hard as well as light and dark. This is a picture story that has me ready to turn the page and start reading. A great photo starts with good elements, in this case: lake, mountains, house, and then adds some good lighting, and then throws in a bonus. In this photo we get several bonus elements, smoke, fog and a hit of sunlight. Great eye, great job!" - John Greengo
