Grand Jury Winner

"One of the first steps to a great environmental image is being in the right place at the right time. Done and done!  The rhythm and repetition of the linear posts are dramatically interrupted by the explosion of water and make for a very dynamic composition. Nearly monochromatic tones enhance the breathtaking feeling of this ominous yet compelling scene. Well done!" - Brad Olson

Runner Up

"This image is a very beautiful capture of emotion and only improved by the bold contrast in black and white.  There are actually a lot of contrasts at work here and in the end it's just a very pleasurable depiction of this moment of joy." - Brad Olson

Amateur Winner
People's Choice

"This is truly an epic image! There is a tenuous balance between the delicate beauty and the overwhelming power of the waves. The composition works really well to emphasize the movement and scope of that enormous swell. The curve of the wave directs your eye to the surfboard that pops from the otherwise blue scene in an image that can barely contain all of the tension and drama of the sea. Congratulations!" - Brad Olson
