Grand Jury Winner

"The combination of a great moment and light is wonderful. I also like that the child isn’t facing the camera; the anonymity makes the image more universal. I can remember moment looking at my grandparents’ horses as a child." - Rick A. Brown

Runner Up

"This feels cinematic to me. It feels like the opening scene to a movie that you can make your own story for in your mind. Is it the story of a gaucho on his arrival to a new town? Abandito trying to hide from the law? You get the idea. Going for this sort of cinematic feel is the central theme to my recent work, so admittedly I am biased to that sort of thing." - Rick A. Brown

Runner Up

"The silhouette against the sunset colors in the mist strike a very noble tone. Personally, I think I would have processed the background to maybe 1/3 of a stop brighter, but that is really nitpicking." - Rick A. Brown
