Grand Jury Winner

"This photograph speaks to me as it not only displays a single dancer, but also the joy of dancing together with others. The inclusion of flying particles has lost it’s wow factor for me, as it has been done by so many lately. In this image however, it's subtle and adding motion without being overpowering. The overall feel of the image, the choreography, framing, processing and toning create an image that  is true to the competition title: It invites me to dance! All this creates a beautiful, positive, energetic and timeless photograph." - Stephan Bollinger
