Grand Jury Winner

"Short depth of field doesn't mean that the objects in the background gets completely neglected. I love how you first see the beautiful ballerina in the image, then see the horse in the background, which gives the image more context." - Elaine Li

Runner Up

"I love how the photographer was able to capture the look inside the dog's eyes. Photography is about capturing moments, and this photo did just that, with the leaf falling down and the dog eyeing it. Perfect timing." - Elaine Li

Amateur Winner

"This is a beautiful shot where the yellow stamen is the main focus of the image, and the purple pedals act as a secondary supporting element. The yellow almost looks like it pops right out of the picture." - Elaine Li
