Grand Jury Winner

"You did an amazing job of keeping this image nice and clean! Our eyes go right to the snake as it peaks out of the foliage! This cutie is nice and sharp, which really gives a punch of, “I’m looking at you!” I’m glad you kept everything soft around the snake and the variance of luminosity in the greens goes perfect, giving depth in foreground, middle, and background. Getting down low was a great choice for your composition. You have just enough negative space so we can feel the snake peeking up and looking at us as if we were actually there! This is a perfect image to represent our theme. Nice work Michael! Congratulations! " - Janice Sullivan

"What an awesome story here! You kept the background nice and clean and the color matches perfect with the frog. This image puts a huge smile on my face! I really liked your detail on the frog and his buddy (or shall I say princess) the snail! I have to tell you, I kept going back and forth with your image and “Peek” I wish I could give 2 Grand prices. This unique piece is a high runner up so be proud! " - Janice Sullivan

Runner Up

"The clarity here is AMAZING!  I just love your details and the eye is perfect! You did a great job with the background. I really like the soft color and the bottom circular orange goes with the underside of the lizard, it’s a perfect compliment. I just want to touch this water dragon because of the intricate details here.  This would look amazing printed nice and large! Nice...very nice! " - Janice Sullivan
