Grand Jury Winner

"There are many things to love about this photo. The Milky Way frames up the overall scene and adds an instant element of interest, while the subtle colors and play of light emphasize the details and texture in the foreground. The framing is very well executed, with balance in the overall composition, interesting forms, reflections, and excellent placement of the scene within the frame. This is a magical scene, and a photo that is very pleasing to view." - Tim Grey
