Grand Jury Winner

"In this picture Jenny really capturee the action and essence of the play by perfectly freezing the water splashes and capturing the bear expressions." - Daisy Gilardini

Runner Up

"Another great action shot. The fast shutter speed froze the shake and the water droplets with perfect timing while forming a great spiral. The focus on the nose of the bear is spot on and the joyful expression of the bear make the connection with the viewer." - Daisy Gilardini

Runner Up

"A very serene scene of a moment of tenderness between mother and cub.Love the back lighting but I wish there would have been a little more breathing room on the left of the frame." - Daisy Gilardini
