Grand Jury Winner

"The composition and detail to the theme makes this a memorable photograph. Very well composed and beautifully processed for tones and details without going overboard. The repeating lines of physical objects as well as light and shadow make this a prime example of quality work. Those perfectly placed repeating lines lead the viewer to the counter point in color contrast that is the tree in bloom. Very well done." - Mark Rainer

Runner Up

"Beautifully composed, gorgeous light and just the right touch of post processing make this another great example of how photography is an art. I love finding patterns in nature and this is a fantastic example of Mother Nature doing her work and the photographer’s eye to see the beauty that is there and adding their artistic skills in a way that looks natural. Beautifully done." - Mark Rainer

Runner Up

"While this one could easily be overlooked because of its very basic composition and post processing it’s for these reasons that this photograph should be a runner up. Well thought out, processed minimally, subtle light make this a very strong photograph. Its knowing when to process heavily and minimally that is missing in a lot of photographs today.  Its great to see an example of subtle that allows the viewer to linger." - Mark Rainer

Runner Up

"I love the composition, I’m big on composition light/shadow, and post processing. This photograph uses all of these and placing the brightest element dead center is normally a composition killer, in this case its right on, for me. The post processing is stellar with the photographers use of tonality as a juxtaposition to the brightness. Well done." - Mark Rainer
