Grand Jury Winner

"I like the simplicity and especially the use of the full tonality of the blacks to whites. The repetitive design of "round"  and "curves" occur through out the image- round leaf, round pool, round droplets, curves of the leaf's edge- make it a very interesting image. All line lead into the pool at the center, keeps the eye moving." - Jeff Foott

Runner Up

"It is definitely minimal. the reflection makes the image work, great "pose" by the ant. Care was taken to get a background that made the subject stand out. Well crafted." - Jeff Foott

Runner Up

"The smoothness of the water from a long exposure provides for a reflection and especially- feeling. The hint of light between water and cloud defines the space. Very subtle but very nice." - Jeff Foott

Runner Up

"Very simple, but nice composition. The dark cloud parallel to the tower makes it work. The Bird adds a nice touch. Feels surreal almost." - Jeff Foott
