Grand Jury Winner

"What a treat to see this one. Camping and waking up to this view in the morning is winning at life, let alone photography. Great balance in the composition. The touch of green from the meadow in the foreground, but it doesn't distract you from the mountains and sunburst in the distance. BEAUTIFUL work." - Ant Pruitt

Runner Up

"This image could also be #1, but it's a very close #2 for me. It's absolutely beautiful and the image screams "morning" shoot, even down to the horse doing its morning exercise. Beautiful atmosphere with the mist, haze, and light. " - Ant Pruitt

Runner Up

"This image is quite nice. But unfortunately, my principles can't grant it as the best because it's title "night train," Even though it looks like a perfect image for a morning theme, that title bothered me. The image has great contrast and depth. The kiss of light hitting the seats shows texture, too. I really like it, but it's not a "morning" shot." - Ant Pruitt
