People's Choice

Grand Jury Winner

"A very refreshing and unconventional autumn photo, this one immediately caught my eye. In a world where we're inundated with imagery it becomes increasingly difficult to create unique compositions, but Christine managed to do just that with this shot. Fall is a time of transition. I felt that this image illustrated the change of the leaves and the line of the river leads the viewer's eye into an unknown place, symbolic of the approaching winter season. I love the creativity of this shot and the diverse colors in the foliage. Great work!" - Nathaniel Smalley

Runner Up

"The forest during the fall is a magical place with the sun beams filtering through the trees illuminating the colorful foliage. This image wonderfully represents the allure of an autumn forest that we all know so well. As a photographer in this season we're always tempted by curiosity to walk further and further into the woods in search of better, more vibrant trees and compositions. The sunlight coming in from the left of the frame makes this image and the rocks in the foreground create wonderful contrast. I love the opening in the center of the photo leading our eyes deeper into the trees and making us wonder what might be found if we just went a little further on our walk." - Nathaniel Smalley

Runner Up

"This image capture the experience that is enjoyed by so many during the fall season of behind the wheel on a country road admiring all the old growth trees in full color. The road creates a dominant element taking us into the frame at a location that would cause you to catch your breath as you came around the bend. I like the simple color pallet and think it works well in this composition. A beautiful canopy of color completes the image and overall the photo is very well balanced." - Nathaniel Smalley
