Grand Jury Winner

"What a great foreground that tells us where the photographer is and what it’s like being there. The light is superbly controlled. I love the back lit wheat bowing in the wind. Yes, we know its Tuscany but this is a very different looking image from an iconic part of the world. The combination of story, exposure, composition and feeling makes this my grand Prize Winner." - Jack Graham

Runner Up

"This was my second favorite image. Having a rainbow and lightning at once I perhaps a once in a life time experience, at least for me. The image well exposed and timed perfectly. Rainbows and lightning are both tough enough to photography correctly.  Nailing both is an amazing accomplishment. I love that the end of the rainbow is tight over another saguaro and that the image is so well balanced (saguaro, lightning and rainbow). Great Job!" - Jack Graham

Runner Up

"I really love the long exposure effect here. This again is a simple image, but well done. I love the sun is centered on the horizon line way about the center of the image. The subject is certainly well defined and the image si properly balanced. The light is powerful but not overdone. Had there been 4 pylons here this would not have worked as well. Having an odd number (5) makes this just perfect. Great job." - Jack Graham

Runner Up

"This is just a very peaceful, uncomplicated image with a great foreground and a nice line leading my eye to the sunset. It is well balanced by the rocks on each side. Sometimes simplicity is the best way to photograph." - Jack Graham

Runner Up

"This is a well-timed image with a great choice of shutter speed. This images tells me the story very quickly. There’s no guessing what the subject is here. The soft color of the sky (orange) compliments the blue wave and water. Well balanced and well done." - Jack Graham
