I’m definitely feeling hungry after looking at all of these scrumptious pictures. It was not an easy contest to judge! Drumroll please! And the winner is…." - Erin Manning

Grand Jury Winner

"This was one of the images that made an instant impression upon me. The impact of the milk splash is what captured my attention, but I also like the simplicity of the color, the composition, and the “I think I’ll put this on cereal” feeling it evokes." - Erin Manning

Runner Up

"Champagne Super Nova had me mesmerized. Not only does the bubbly look refreshing, but the unusual-looking super nova at the top makes this a unique image. I like how the berry is covered in well-lit bubbles and the background light creates an evening mood." - Erin Manning

Runner Up

"Untitled is certainly deserving of an equally appetizing name, but that doesn’t diminish the evocative effect of honey being drizzled over a beautiful fig and cheese. The soft, directional light source creates dimension and form across the image." - Erin Manning

Runner Up

"The simple, minimalist styling of the berries and chocolate against the simple white plate is modern, fresh, and contemporary. I like the texture and repetition of shape in the place mat juxtaposed against the clean white plate. The repeating shape of the strawberry and the balance of the chocolate is a pleasing composition to the eye." - Erin Manning
