    ADVANCED WINNER - Tess Lee


     WHY IT WON:  
    This photo has so many different elements and textures such as water, grass, wood, and even metal - and you handled all them wonderfully. Reflections are notoriously difficult and your execution is spot on. We love the variety of colors that you used in the water and the detail of peaceful swirls lends a relaxing mood to the image. Thank you for your submission and congratulations on this second win!


    BEGINNER WINNER - Jenny Luan Frye


    WHY IT WON:  
    The beginner category is becoming very competitive and difficult to judge but in the end we had to go by what image we would most want to hang on our walls. Your image is so well executed with great perspective and composition. The colors are terrific but do feel that you could have pushed them even a little more. Our favorite area was how you handled the reflection – very believable! Great job Jenny and congratulations on your second win. This will now put you in our Advanced Category for future challenges!
