"A beautiful rolling wave that creates a tube of water, showing the power of water. The color harmony as well as the strong composition, without being distracted by any other element rose this wave to the winning position!" - Ken Sklute

"A lovely composition of this layer of Icelandic waterfalls at the deep, dark end of the day was a very close second to the winner. There is nothing distracting the viewer from enjoying these gorgeous waterfalls." - Ken Sklute
