People's Choice

Grand Jury Winner

"This image combines representing the contest motto perfectly with emphasizing how the texture of animals can be used by them to melt together with their surroundings. Thousands of years of evolution made this possible and the image is perfectly executed, with a dynamic composition and tender processing." - Felix Inden

Runner Up

"Everything in this image is composed with the special texture of an elephants skin. The eye breaks this surface and reveals the kind character of this animal. It also bind the viewer and makes think about what might have happened to this particular elephant. Together with a very dynamic and thought invoking composition and view guiding, this makes the second place." - Felix Inden

Runner Up

"Great animal chosen to portray the incredible beauty and intricacy of mother nature when it came to textures and colours. The well balanced processing and intense look of Mandrill makes this a great third place." - Felix Inden
