Thank you to all the photographers that shared their creative photos shot in the dark in this photo contest with chances to win the iPhone 6 and much more!

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Dave Lehl for his collaboration as a guest judge. Dave is an action sports/adventure/lifestyle photographer hailing from Denver, Colorado. He cut his teeth in the snowboard industry, photographing athletes from the backcountry of Canada to the streets of Beijing, China. More recently he's expanded his focus to more motion in general, but his favorites include skateboarding, cycling, running, and motorcycling. "First off I have to say that EVERY single shot that made it into the finals was AMAZING!  I took this very seriously and really looked at each and every entry to make sure I was really seeing everything in the photo.  In the end though, it boiled down to photos that left me with a feeling.  Whether that feeling was isolation, awe, or wanderlust, it didn't matter;  It only mattered that the shots made me feel something.  The following photos I kept returning to again and again" - Dave Lehl

Grand Jury Winner

"There was a ton of grandiosity going on with most of the other photos in the finals, huge vistas with infinite possibilities, but this one was just so simple and focused, and yet has a lot of nuances and intricacies as well. Technically I think the lighting is spot on.  I'm can't tell if Carl's photoshopped a model's face onto a doll, or if he's come up with the most facially realistic doll I've ever seen, but either way, I love the mood and expression that he's created. The light, clothing, and hair all tell a grander story, one that I'm not sure we'll ever be privy to hear, unfortunately, but that's part of what works for me.  The prospect of a greater theme.  I'm hoping there's more to see!" - Dave Lehl

People's Choice

"Like I said, my favorite photos were the ones that created a strong feeling and this one presented a smorgasbord for my senses.  Ever since I was a kid I looooved to stare up at the stars and wonder for hours what was going on up there.  Now that I'm older with a slightly more advanced knowledge of what's out there, I actually like looking up at the night sky even more.  I love the exploration aspect as well.  Setting out into the unknown armed only with a strong curiosity and a light source to create new adventures.  Makes me want to go camping so bad!  And that location!  It almost looks like a landscape from a video game to me.  And I love that this was a well thought out and executed shot  I see a lot of craft here.  Believe me, I love a good spur-of-the-moment snapshot, but this one had some thought put into it and it shows.  Overall the shot just has a sense of grandeur that won me over.  It makes the cosmos seem so vast and impossibly beautiful, but also within reach.  Love it." - Dave Lehl

Runner Up

"Again, this one harkens to my love of stargazing and staring into the unknown.  Technically, I have to admit, I wish there was a little bit more detail in the field, the back of the barn, and the mountains behind the barn, but as a whole, this one kept popping into my head as one of my top picks.  However I do appreciate the flash work with the front of the barn lit up as well as the front of the subject, which really brings the core components of the shot into focus.  Overall, again back to the whole 'feeling' thing, this shot illustrates that feeling that we all experience.  The feeling of being such an insignificant speck in the grand puzzle of the universe, yet it's each one of us that ultimately forms the whole, making the individual just as important as any other, bringing the cosmos down to a seemingly more manageable size." - Dave Lehl
