Grand Jury Winner

"The use of lines in this image is beautifully done and the contrast between the soft and hard lines is striking. The same with the tones. They are dynamic and dramatic, and really demands the attention of the viewer." - Maren Klemp

Runner Up

"This image really stands out. The composition is intriguing and original. The use of light is masterfully done and it seems to me that the concept is well thought through. This is wedding photography at its best." - Maren Klemp

Amateur Winner

"This image has such a strong expression due to the photographer's exceptional use of contrast and lines. The contrast between the emotional connection of the couple and their cold and harsh surroundings makes a great impact. This picture reminds me of the work by Henri Cartier Bresson, which is a huge compliment to the photographer. " - Maren Klemp
