Runner Up

"This is the most artistic display of skin we have seen for quite some time. This photo transports so much emotion by still keeping the protagonist anonymous. In a sense, their identity does not get in the way of the message. Same for the background: Plain, neutral, colorwise in contrast to the red toned bodies. Awesome concept." - Michael Zelbel

Runner Up

"Perfect example for showing just enough skin! This is a super successful tightrope walk between posing a scene in a seductive manner while at the same time avoiding to show anything that might feel obscene. Technically the photos is absolutely perfect. The light through the window provides beautiful short light on the model. Also there is just enough fill light from inside the room to avoid any shadows sinking into black. Masterful!" - Michael Zelbel

Grand Jury Winner

"Golden Skin, yellow lips, red and blue eyes. The skin of the models face is artistically covered with colors, that have absolutely nothing to do with skin, but they are working beautifully together. The result a surreal beauty that is very intense. The photographer found a wonderful way to hide skin and present skin at the same time." - Michael Zelbel
