Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best landscape shots in the Natural Landscapes Photo Contest with chances to win a Canon 5D MK III and more!

"What an amazing collection of landscape photography! This contest was particularly challenging because of the quality of so many wonderful images. So to narrow it down, I looked for technical excellence and for the wow factor! These are the natural landscape images that really caught my eye, and I hope you agree." - Laurie Rubin

Grand Jury Winner

"What a spectacular image! This defines the word “dramatic” in so many ways. The dark moodiness of this image that cradles the runoff from the waterfalls high above was captured so well. Wonderful composition with the river leading the viewer’s eye up into the image. The light areas also pull us along the bottom and then the clouds on the left balance the dark cliffs on the right. A really powerful image that I kept being drawn to. Congratulations!" - Laurie Rubin

Runner Up

"This image really deserves to be in the Runner-Up category. The waterfall was captured with just the right amount of long exposure in order to create that smooth effect with the water without blowing out the highlights. The fact that the photographer decided to make this a vertical format was brilliant since it creates a wonderful composition from foreground rocks to the waterfall to a backdrop of lush green trees. Gorgeous and well done!" - Laurie Rubin

Runner Up

"What an amazing capture of a double rainbow, spanning over a river in just the perfect placement! Love the rich blues that compliment the gold trees and grasses in this landscape. It looks like the photographer had one foot on land and one foot in the water to get this perspective. This was a very special moment captured at just the right time in just the right place. Congratulations!" - Laurie Rubin

Runner Up

"This image really caught my attention with the mountain in the background reaching up towards the sky, so high above everything else. The repeating patterns of the grass creates such a beautiful foreground as the line of clouds wraps it’s way along the base of the mountain. The colors compliment each other and even the vignette in the sky along the edges draws us back into the image creating a well composed, nicely processed result!" - Laurie Rubin
