A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Josh Malik for his collaboration as the guest judge. Josh Malik is a fine art photographer located in Los Angeles, California taking reality and bending it into something surreal and unnatural. The images that are created by Joshua are relative to darkness, but hold a slight beauty to them. The timeless feels evoked from the pieces are consistent throughout his whole portfolio. His images hold question to them and leave the viewer somewhat uncomfortable.

Grand Jury Winner

"This image was absolutely stunning!!  Not only were the colors great at encompassing an overall mood, the way the image was framed made it stand out apart from the others.  It is as though one can feel the city being engulfed by a never ending fog, uncertain of what is yet to come.  Great job creating such a well composed and thought out image!" - Josh Malik

Runner Up

 "High Rise had incredible movement to it!  The leading lines of both structures allow the viewer to see the image in entirety.  While the other images were also very well composed, this image in particular allowed for something a bit different.  The image allowed for two shapes that would often times be considered opposites are very harmonious.  What an amazing and well thought out image!!" - Josh Malik

Runner Up

 "While architectural photography can be difficult to frame, this one holds something so unique to it.  The way the building is shaped, one may feel as though they were caught in the curve of a giant industrial wave.  Pairing the fluidity of the building and making the image black and white, it added a sense of animosity to the location and was more focused to the artist's expression." - Josh Malik

Runner Up

 "Out of the many long exposures in this contest, "San Francisco skyline" was the most enticing for a couple reasons: the leading lines, the depth of the image, and the slight gradient in the skyline.  The leading lines in this image not only were doing their job to get the viewer to the subject, but the repetition almost creates movement in itself.  The lines lead you directly to the center of the image, where it gives the most depth.  All of the city is beautifully encompassed by a soft gradient, and could relate to the amount of life reflected from below." - Josh Malik
