Grand Jury Winner


"Though this image did not use all three primary colors, the two it did use worked so well together.  The vibrant red against the soft, cold blue make for such a beautiful combination.  Not only were the colors amazing, but the amount of detail encompassed into the image looked so great.  The positioning and composition of the image definitely shows a lot of thought and effort as well!  It's not just a gigantic macro image of a ladybug, but a ladybug lost in a soft blue." - Joshua Malik 

Runner Up


"Not only was this image utilizing all of the primary colors, but it also appeared to have been a very difficult image to execute.  Not only is it the bottom view of a hot air balloon, it looked as though the photographer had to get into the balloon and lay in the basket to be able to capture it.  The composition works really great with the image as well!  There is a lot of warm yellows and reds on the balloon, but only a handful of blue.  That was solved by having the right side being sky, opposed to just a close-cropped version of just the balloon. " - Joshua Malik 

Runner Up


"This image stood out to me for multiple reasons.  The first, I've never seen such a detailed cropped image of two birds.  The second, the colors (primary + secondary) make this image blend so well together!  Not one color is overwhelming, but they all work in harmony.  This is the perfect example of how nature works to create the perfect palette of colors to look at.  This is such a crazy beautiful image!" - Joshua Malik
