Grand Jury Winner

"A perfectly executed long exposure image, I love the blue silky smooth water that shows the peacefulness of the scene. I also really like the composition with the leading line coming from the bottom right hand corner of the frame that leads your eye up the beautiful natural arch of Durdle Door." - Daniel Tran

Runner Up

"Great interpretation of the brief. An amazing image of two arches in nature in one single shot. The arch of the milky way and the rock formation works well together to compliment each other. I like how the photographer decided to add a bit of light painting to this scene to help light up the interesting rock formations and bring back some detail in the shadows. " - Daniel Tran

Runner Up

"A beautiful, dramatic seascape image. I love the colours in this shot and also how perfectly Eric captured the motion and flow of the receding water. This helps draw your eye into the scene and the natural arch rock formation. The sunstar also adds more interest to the image. " - Daniel Tran
