Grand Jury Winner

"A very strong interpretation of the brief. The layers that make up this image create a story of the place and allows the viewer an insight into this scene. Sometimes working with layers could cause havoc but the photographer has done an incredible job of capturing organized chaos where all the elements in the image comes together in a seamless motion. A beautiful storytelling image, congratulations!" - Krystle Wright

Runner Up

"What a wonderful beautiful and subtle moment captured here by the photographer. The orange glow combined with the deer creates such a wonderful atmospheric image. Great use of composition as it was a wonderful surprise to let the viewer search the image and be surprised by a majestic animal relaxing in the side of the frame." - Krystle Wright

"A stunning portrait and a wonderful interpretation of the brief. The tones really emphasize and compliment the subject. I could see this image easily being printed in a magazine as it has all the right elements."- Krystle Wright

"An incredible landscape captured at the right time! The sun rays beautifully light up the canyon and create a dramatic feel that really draws the viewer into the image. Great control of the tones and seeing the full range which really caps off a great image taken" - Krystle Wright
