Grand Jury Winner

"This image immediately captivated me. It perfectly captures the spirit of a dancing flower with it's feeling of movement and motion.  The background is simple and beautiful with it's own sense of movement and it allows the flower to gather all the attention of the viewer.  The flower itself is lovely with it's delicate and curved leaves and graceful bloom.  It all comes together for beautiful and magical dancing flower image!" - Donna Eaton

Runner Up

"This image has a feeling of a prima ballerina with the chorus of dancers blurred softly in the background. I loved the curved stem of the flower and backlight which gives the flower a sense of movement and grace. " - Donna Eaton

Runner Up

"There's nothing like the feeling of dancing in the rain and this image really conveys that feeling.  The petals of the bloom remind me of a dancer's skirt and the droplets give it a sense of freshness.  Lovely lighting too!" - Donna Eaton

Runner Up

"The lighting really makes the image special. The beautiful curves and color of the calla lily give the feeling of a flamingo dancer with the layers of her skirt twirling. I can almost hear the music!" - Donna Eaton
