People's Choice

Grand Jury Winner

"The subject juxtaposition between nature and man brings a unique, dramatic quality to the piece. The framing is also impeccable allowing the viewer to take in the breathtaking view of the vista complimented by the bird of pray on the periphery of the frame." - Bora

Runner Up

"There is so much, yet so little going on in the frame. The leading lines and the distribution of the points of interest in the photo make this an engaging composition worth noting." - Bora

Runner Up

"The atmospheric fog blanketing the frame brings a whole new dimension to the composition. The buck on the periphery of the frame marries it all together nicely and suggests a unique storyline, which pulls the viewer into the piece." - Bora
