"Exceptional image and light.  Getting to your location when the best opportunity for dramatic lighting can really pay off!" - Ron Clifford

Runner Up

"The wonderful composition of large shapes all directing my view to the upper edge of the waterfall and such controlled and tasteful processing make this a definite favourite, I would prefer in a contest image not to have to look at a watermark in the main viewing area of an image though" - Ron Clifford

Runner Up

"Excellent composition and textures.  The simplified colour palette contribute to a very powerful  travel landscape image" - Ron Clifford

Runner Up
