Grand Jury Winner

"An incredible image in many ways. Not only was it taken in one of the most beautiful places in the world, it was taken on a very special moment too. The combination of the rainbows perfectly aligned in the center and the rainstorm on the right is beautiful." - Peter-Paul de Meijer

Runner Up

"A great photo of something that is very beautiful, but so dangerous too. The composition is great and I love the dramatic coloring in this photograph." - Peter-Paul de Meijer

Runner Up

"The natural world is full of moving examples of the bond between mother and young and the maternal love shown by the female cow elephant is particularly touching. The lighting in this scene is great too." - Peter-Paul de Meijer
