Congratulations to the Grand Jury Winner “empty space between us” by stephanie_schneider
“I really love the composition of this one. The positioning of the model on the tree and the way the eye is led is fantastic. Also, the tones and the textures really bring it together for me.” -Paul R. Giunta
Congratulations Runner Up “Female Figure Studies” by laurencoakley
“I really like the combination of all of the natural elements here. The depth of field revealing the landscape just enough to get a grasp on the beauty of the scene but not too much to distract from the pose of the model in the foreground. Again, the tones and the textures of this one play off of each other nicely.” -Paul R. Giunta
Congratulations Runner Up “untitled” by alexanderduvall
“I was really drawn to the softness and the innocence of this one. The expression of the woman walking alone with a picnic basket gets my imagination moving on the circumstance of the scene.” -Paul R. Giunta
