Grand Jury Winner

"A big part of my decision making for this contest was first how much it felt like "Winter in the city,  and if it spoke to me about the theme of the contest.  There were so may very good photographs it came down to the connection and story in the image the photographer was able to convey.  I Love the way I can "feel" the winter cold here.  I connect to it visually and emotionally.  The use of black and white has distilled the image to its essential elements and it exudes the theme "Winter in the City".  I shoot a lot in cold and wintery climates and know how the snow falls and feels and I feel as though I am right there with the people and the dog in enduring yet another winter. When I look at images I look for not only technical merit, I also look for connection and character, the thing that helps me remember an image long after I've seen it and this image is one that does just that." - Ron Clifford

Runner Up

"This image is powerful through its simplicity.  I feel the awe of the child seeing the giant ploughs pushing through the snow, to the point I can hear the metal blades scraping along as they clear the snow.  I can appreciate the scale of things from the child's perspective." - Ron Clifford

Runner Up

"A very powerful composition of an iconic view of a city.  The power of the storm and how the snow has created mood and depth are incredible.   This also depicts the contest theme so well and if there had been an element with people in it, may well have hit first place." - Ron Clifford

Runner Up

"A unique perspective and beautiful vertical presentation of winter in the city, the time of day, attention to composition and a muted simple colour palette all contributed to my choice for this as a runner up." - Ron Clifford

Runner Up

"This one felt like the theme and was not typical with white and fluffy snow but is bold and emotive and really well executed with a dark noir feeling." - Ron Clifford

Amateur Winner

"The element of story and feeling both play into this being selected.  I am drawn to the expression of the woman and the wet wintery feeling like life has presented a change in seasons. Good composition and colours and tone that match the mood and subject helps me connect this to the "Winter in the City" theme." - Ron Clifford
