People's Choice

Grand Jury Winner

"Talk about an image that tells a story – this is a wonderfully moody, timeless image. I simply can’t say enough good things about this photo – from the placement of the awning above to the figure just stepping out of the light and into the shadow. The black and white processing is top notch and gives that timeless quality to the shot. A stunning image to be very proud of!" - Paul Michael Kane

Runner Up

"This is a wonderful still life image . . . Love the placement of the time piece and the way the chain leads our eye right up to the subject. The bokeh is beautifully positioned. Still life photography gives shooters the opportunity to control every aspect of the shot – from light to position of the subject - and this image is the perfect example of that. Bravo!" - Paul Michael Kane

Runner Up

"Absolutely LOVE the muted tones of this image.  We have a terrific color contrast between the flat colors surrounding and the deep, red hues of the rose. Very good depth of field and the bokeh perfectly suits this still life. A stunning example of simplicity at its finest . . . Just Terrific!!" - Paul Michael Kane

Runner Up

"Another amazing storytelling image . . . the depth of field is just perfect. The soft bokeh in the top left of the image beautifully balances out the subject of the benches on the bottom right. The warm, inviting tones really contrast well with an image that conveys the feeling of emptiness. A terrific illustration of seeing a shot that most would pass up – Bravo!!" - Paul Michael Kane
