Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best nature photos showing soothing and soft colors in the Pastel Tones In Nature Photo Contest with chances to win a Nikon D5300 and more!

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Daniel Kordan for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. I have been facsinated by the possibilities of photography since my early childhood. I grew up at the beautiful lake region under Moscow. I graduated the art painting school when I was a kid. During my study at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology I gained experience not only in physics, but also in mountain climbing and hiking, guiding tourist groups in winter and in summer. Right after the graduation I became a guide of photo-workshops and chief editor of “Continent expedition” magazine.

Grand Jury Winner

"I love beautiful subtle tones in this image. Balanced in tonality, with soft pastel tones transitions from warm to cold. Composition is clean and simple. Technically well done - all-in-focus. Deserves a first place." - Daniel Kordan

Runner Up

"Mount Roy is one of my favorite hikes. I know its quite challenging to get there. Great job keeping nice dim tones in this image. Dark mountains to fresh snow white. Clean and simple composition that helps to concentrate on tone transitions." - Daniel Kordan

Runner Up

"Tuscany is a paradise for photographer. With soft pastel tones in the morning, it definitely fits to contest guidelines! Nice composition and gentle processing. Painting-like photo. " - Daniel Kordan
