\Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing castles in the Enchanted Castles Photo Contest with chances to win a DJI Phantom 3 and more!

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Laura Tillinghast for her collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. Laura Tillinghast is a native of Northern California and has been an artist most of her life. She discovered photography as her true passion in college and from that point on she has never put her camera down. Shooting primarily advertising and editorial content, she has found herself photographing everything from gourmet cheese to gorgeous models (though not at the same time). Whenever she shoots she keeps the same goal in mind no matter the subject matter: make it beautiful.

Grand Jury Winner

"The quality of light in this photo is breathtaking. The sun rising behind and through the castle adds such depth and drama to an already impressive composition. Simply stunning." - Laura Tillinghast

Runner Up

"I could stare at this photo for hours. The reflection of the landscape in the still water creates a beautiful kaleidoscope effect that is hard to look away from. The cascading greens and yellows of the surrounding landscape add a wonderful feeling of life to a perfectly still image.  " - Laura Tillinghast

Runner Up

"This photo feels like stepping into a fairytale world. The composition of the road stretching into the distance invites the viewer forward and pulls them in. Very well done." - Laura Tillinghast
