Congratulations to the winner ”Trail along the Gorge” by timot78
“A stunning photo in every way. The perfect placement of the camera at the same height as the prominent rock strata makes everything converge to a point of laser-like interest. Great use of long exposure on the water. Rich colors without looking over-processed. Compelling mystery in the leading line of the trail. The flowing composition which keeps the eye moving endlessly around this beautiful setting. A masterpiece.” – Phil
Congratulations to the Runner Up “Hide II, Iceland, 2013″ by Paulowen
“We loved the square format and the way this composition breaks the rule of thirds by putting the horizon right in the middle, and the path centered in the bottom, and the gazebo right in the center of the photo — and yet it feels dynamic and interesting because of the twisting path which throws it just enough off balance and disappears into mystery. Excellent use of leading lines. Natural, non-processed look makes it feel like you are there.” – Phil
