Grand Jury Winner

"This picture tells an exciting story in wonderful colours and a pleasing composition. It's also sharp where it should be (might sound basic, but often enough pictures are rejected as they lack this basic requirement). The light is gorgeous, the exposure spot on, the depth of field beautiful. Congratulations." - Elke Vogelsang

Runner Up

"This was an instant favourite of mine. I love the humour. Often enough you'll find a picture that tells a great story or is funny but lacks the technical qualities. In this case, I think everything works really well. The colours are gorgeous, the composition good, the light is wonderful. Great picture. Congratulations." - Elke Vogelsang

Runner Up

"We've seen a ton of pictures of polar bears in zoos and some of us might even be slightly tired of them. This picture, though, is very well done. The scene is intriguing, the exposure spot on, the colours are gorgeous and that reflection of the child's surprised face in the glass adds that little extra storyline. Wonderful picture. congratulations!" - Elke Vogelsang
