People's Choice

Grand Jury Winner

"I chose this one based upon the dramatic impact and story telling success.  Compositionally the placement of important elements is as much about the flow as it is about the light and dark values. Light values in the night sky are slightly higher than the highest value in the house, this is important in directing the viewer's attention. The house is the anchor of the story, its prominence is secondary to the night sky but is well lit in just the right places for a viewer to believe the scene was only lit by the brightness of the sky. Believability is very important when it comes to photographing a natural phenomenon where no other light source is feasible.  The foreground is an important element which provides depth, I would have toned it down slightly along with the tall pine just behind the house. When an image has such a strong visual impact it's easy to overlook small details such as these." - Patricia Bean
