Grand Jury Winner

"This photo is stunning and comprises everything a tropical scene should have. The composition is on point and I love the silhouette of the trees along the horizon. The contrast of the complementary blue and orange really accentuates the composition and just makes the photo stand out. Everything, from the contrasting colors to the composition, balances and enhances the scene, which makes the image emotive and stand out among the rest. It is just beautifully shot and absolutely perfect." - Jennifer Lynne

Runner Up

"This photo is one of my favorites. I love the composition of the spiraling clouds and how that is reflected in the water below. The posts in the foreground draw your eye to the clouds and the tropical trees.  The exposure is perfect and I love that we get a hint of the tropical silhouette in the background. This photo is so well balanced which really adds to the serene emotion." - Jennifer Lynne

Runner Up

"I love the perspective and emotion in this photo. The light flare hitting over the bow of the boat is so evocative and lights up the yellow hull against the blue sky. The contrast of the blue and the yellow really makes the scene pop.  Again, the composition and exposure are suburb and the contrast of the complementary colors are perfect" - Jennifer Lynne
