Grand Jury Winner

"I looked through the images first just going by "gut". The winner would need to be eye-catching and unique first and foremost. On my next several passes I took a closer look at lighting, execution, food styling and post production. Overall this image was not only appetizing and well-styled but the artist took the splash/spill concept the extra mile on this one. The post production was also very clean and elegant- from the fading of the reflection to the retouching on individual items, to the white but not "pure white" background which is less commonly seen in still life images. All of those elements came together to make a solid image! " - Rob Andrew
