Grand Jury Winner

"One might argue that this is more of a child portrait than a farm animal picture, but the overall beauty of the picture really gets to me. The child's innocent and sad face and the wild hair add emotion and a natural atmosphere. The light is beautiful and the processing soft and subtle." - Elke Vogelsang

Honorary Mention

"I love the intimacy of this picture, supported by the tight crop. The picture is very emotional und well composed. The soft, pure white of the fur underlines the softness of the scene." - Elke Vogelsang

Runner Up

"This is a simple but effective horse portrait. The natural light supported by flash light on the horse add lots of atmosphere. The wild mane adds naturalness and movement." - Elke Vogelsang
