Thank you to all the photographers that shared their Artificial photos in the Artificial Light Photo Contest 2017 with chances to win a Spyder5ELITE and more!

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Noël Alva for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. "My name is Noël Alva and I'm a Los Angeles native photographer who has been shooting for 16 years. I mainly focus on lifestyle and travel on my Instagram @noel.alva but I shoot everything from weddings to concert photography as well. I shoot with a Nikon D750 and 20mm 1.8 lens about 98% of the time. Although I live in Los Angeles, I never am home because I'm always out seeking adventure in beautiful places with wonderful individuals. My next big adventure is in November where I move to Guatemala for several months before then roaming all over Central and South America for up to two years until I make it to Patagonia."

Grand Jury Winner

"I live my life constantly looking up at the cosmos. From starry night skies to following to moon phases to trying to spot a satellite orbiting the earth, I absolutely love the feeling I get when I look up and realize that we are small and that the universe is something we are barely beginning to comprehend. But it's a beautiful thing to remember that we are made of the same celestial dust." - Noel Alvarenga

Runner Up

"Same as before. But the difference with this one is the fact that everyone has a path in life. Some roads  lead to dead ends and require u-turns or traveling on  unpaved, uneven roads. Whatever the destination, it's good to remember that we all have a beginning and end point, but to stop from time to time to enjoy the middle. The journey part of it." - Noel Alvarenga

Runner Up

"A moment of seriousness. A moment or reflecting. A moment of peace. It doesn't matter what religion one practices. I think peace and unity and love and light are universal in creating a better tomorrow. Let love light the way." - Noel Alvarenga
