Grand Jury Winner

"I love everything about this image- real, raw, and EPIC!!!  Its a prime example of how there is true beauty in simplicity.  The black and white toning and diffused lighting fit the mood perfectly.  The textures of his beard and hat add to that rugged vibe.  It looks as though the artist used a long focal length lens here which is very effective because it puts emphasis on the subject and blurs out the background.  Awesome awesome work!!!" - Dixie Dixon

Runner Up

"Absolutely beautiful capture here!!!!  I love the soft butterfly lighting- having the light from a high angle in the center definitely brings out her pretty cheekbones and creates a great mood!!  The styling and color choices are gorgeous-  red, green, and purple are split complementary colors so its very pleasing to the eye!!  Love the crop and composition as well… many kudos!!!" - Dixie Dixon

Finalist

"Awesome lifestyle portrait… take out the beats logo and send it over to a marketing director at Marlboro- seriously it would make a great ad for them!!!  I love the composition and the way the artist left negative space on the right side.  The lighting really brings out the texture of his jacket and hair and draws your attention to his hands and cigarette.  You caught a great moment and the black and white toning was the perfect choice here. Really great work!!!" - Dixie Dixon
