PRO/ADVANCED WINNER - Zuzana Spendelova

Why it won:

We understand how tough of a challenge this was with the reflections, glass, and cellophane but you met each area of difficulty with excellent precision! The candy on the plate looks like you can just pick it up and lays properly on the rounded surface – another challenge, I’m sure. The main thing that stood out is just how sharp this image is, with crisp, detail that doesn’t allow one piece of candy to get lost in the group. Excellent work, you must be proud!

Why it won:

Such beautiful colors and soft touch to this piece of work makes this submission stand out. The vertical crop is great while still maintaining all the difficult aspects to the challenge – glass, cellophane, and reflections. There really doesn’t seem to be a weak point and I hope you enjoyed doing it as much as we enjoyed viewing it!
