Grand Jury Winner

"I'm a sucker for depth of field in a macro landscape. It's the ultimate way to add texture to your images through the photographic technique. The colours, angle of view, soft lighting and bokeh all work beautifully here." -  Kisha Bari

Runner Up

 "This image has a wonderful sense of protection and safety. The petals seem to be wrapped up to protect the inner flower. The textures of the underside of the petals lead your eye to the centre of the image and it's organic imperfections are beautiful. Most photographers shoot the flower in it's fully open glory and I like this pre-blooming image. It creates a sense of anticipation." - Kisha Bari

Runner Up

 "The back lighting in this image creates a few key elements that make it great. The deep shadows on this landscape. It highlights the great diversity of textures on this surface. And it also helps create a depth that leads the eye, from the shadowy foreground via the 'footprints', straight to the illuminated yonder. " - Kisha Bari

Runner Up

 "This has been shot at an optimum time of day. The low light has created beautiful textures in the icy foreground and it contrasts beautifully with the soft rolling fog and clouds in the background. It's composed perfectly. As strong as this image is, however, I feel the artist could ease up on some of the post production." - Kisha Bari
