Grand Jury Winner

"It just looks like a modern art masterpiece of jangled colors and textures all pressed together on a single plane. It represents the moment in time I always look for plus the pre thought of what just might happen before it does and be at the place to capture it. LOVE IT" - Michael Gilbert

Runner Up

"Time in the Mirror. For me it was the pre thought of this image that was in the artists mind before taking the time to set it up and fulfill  their vision. Its simple strait forward and allows us to ponder a silent wonder to us all I feel the artist can build on this type of imagery and can not wait to see what they may come up with next on the same theme." - Michael Gilbert

Runner Up

"The placement of the one figure haunts me. How many times have I been that person gazing at the stars and wondering the same thoughts we all have but never really express. Its just stunning and shows a nice amount of technical achievement." - Michael Gilbert

Runner Up
