Grand Jury Winner

"This photograph is absolutely screams beauty.   At first I was not sure if it was multiple exposures but then realized its pure genius.   The exposure is spot on, the reflections above the subject matter in the ice create this optical illusion in my head.  It’s cold but yet it’s hot. We have seen this shot 100 times in the desert or on a beach, this trumps them all.  Great Job!" - Todd Williams

Runner Up

"No question this picture is Electrifying. Great use of a sparkler? I love the detail and precision of the light painting around the guitar and where it has contact with the couch are wonderful. It screams electric and loud! Usually when creating a beautiful image like this you capture the light painter or painters, not this time. It really tells a story and I’m trying to figure out if it’s the couch or the guitar I love most? It’s the perfect couch for a shot like this! Love, love this shot and would like to see a high contrast version of it in Back and White. Beautiful work!" - Todd Williams

Runner Up

"There is nothing better than a fun energetic photo and this is a perfect example.  A cross between a jelly fish and a once bubble.  I can only imagine the big smile on the young persons face as this photo was captured.  Exposure and focus are perfect, you nailed it!   It’s a wonderful moment in time and we have all  played with bubbles at some point in our lives.  This image makes me feel young and puts a huge smile on my face, thanks!" - Todd Williams
