Art Hughes Cornerstone 1st Place Open "beautiful sense of light and space. Great use of a lower angle and the lines naturally created in the image that just makes your eyes flow up and down the column of light in the back and following the soft flow of the water around the stronger texture of the front focal Rock. Image expertly put together from the use of light, treatment and print. "
Louise Kennedy Reflections 1st Place Novice "wow! very skillful image with great choice of depth of field with the lines curving and leading to the center and fading off in the distance. Subtle but striking use of color. It really invites you to continue to look for additional details and colors. Image exquisitely printed and perfect choice of luster paper. well done."
