Grand Jury Winner

"This images just tells a whole story. I also like the composition and that it isn't perfectly straight. Very good storytelling. " - Roman Königshofer

Runner Up

"It's a captivating image! Somehow it directly speaks to me, but i don't know what it is. I also love the contrast and thin depth of field here. Great use of it!" - Roman Königshofer

Runner Up

"I'd love to know how this was captured. Was the photographer in a cage or free-diving? So much mystery in one shot. The great white shark scares most people but also is so intelligent and such an elegant animal. I like that nothing is distracting here. The sun-rays from above make it perfect for me. " - Roman Königshofer
