Grand Jury Winner

"I found the creativity in this shot just amazing. It's perfectly constructed in a way that inspires mystery and wonder and the result is an images it causes you to return to it over and over. The ripples of light on the subjects back that are also carried down to the city floor do a brilliant job binding the scene together. Fantastic work." - Wes Hardaker

Runner Up

"I'm not sure there could be a cuter baby scene than this one. The brilliant use of miniature "adult" items, such as the china, combined with the softer childhood items, such as the cat, create a wonderful composition that references a book which also rides the line between childhood and adulthood. The hat and its sign are the final touch that brings perfection to the scene. Well done all around." - Wes Hardaker

Congratulations Runner Up "PERFORMANCE FOR ONE " by nikosladic

"As a minimalist, this one struck a deep chord with me. The use of an endless, repetitive field of objects with a sole interruption always brings power to an image. The careful use of highlights and dark shadows behind each seat that perfectly matches the subject's own hair and clothes is brilliant. Awesome photograph!" - Wes Hardaker

Runner Up

"This image resonates strongly with anyone that has been a teenager. The use of the broken mirror, torn clothing and intense stare reflect (pun intended) on the intense and troubling times of young adulthood. Perfectly executed." - Wes Hardaker

Runner Up

"Wonderful use of colorful clothing and dance in a simplistic outdoor stage." - Wes Hardaker
