Grand Jury Winner

"What a beautiful capture. The reptiles incredible vibrant, clean, and perfectly placed markings, the crisp bright green leaves, the way the reptile is balancing on what seems to be a weak cluster of leaves, and the way his eye seems to be looking straight at the camera. This is a really wonderful image." - Michael Bonocore 

Runner Up

"Ah, I love this image! The green color is so vibrant and crisp, and the wood looks rugged and raw. The way the snakes are coming together is an incredible moment that doesn’t often happen in photographs. Your patience paid off. Incredible!" - Michael Bonocore

Runner Up

"A perfect macro photo. The almost even distance between the four water drops lends to a very interesting subject. I love the pink bokeh in the background. But what really makes the image incredible is the pink reflections in the water drops. Great composition, great colors, and and a unique capture. Well done!" - Michael Bonocore

Runner Up

"Boy, this one almost took the grand prize, but there was something missing from it. After staring at it for 5 minutes, I finally figured it out. I REALLY wanted to see more of the colors and waterfall. The immediate foreground of the rocks is unneeded in this image, and either raising the tripod, walking over the rocks first set of rocks, or angling the camera slightly up to give us more of a view of those incredible colors, that beautiful waterfall, and this overall picture perfect scene would have made it a winner. Such a beautiful image, we want to see more of the scene."  - Michael Bonocore

Runner Up

"I really really like this photo, but unfortunately, it is very similar to a lot of other autumn leave images. But this is one of the better ones I have seen! The only reason why it is kept out is that it isn’t as original as the other images, but a beautiful scene nonetheless. " - Michael Bonocore
