City Competition 6 2016 - all cities! Results

Daniel Clouser ( 500px.com ) from the US has won $716.00 with this superb city shot. I love how the buildings have reflections of other building, and then there are more reflections in the foreground. It makes this city architecture shot very interesting to look at.

Jamie Zink from the US has won $794.00. Looking at Jamie's Instagram photos, I can see that he loves taking photos in the fog. This photo has many elements which make it an excellent landscape photo: the beam of light, the rocky coastline, the birds, and the atmospheric fog. I love the way the sea and sky merge together.

Thank you to everyone who entered one of the 147 entries, and to the judge Duncan MacArthur for choosing 10 winning shots.

Congratulations to Chris Gardner from the US who has won $894.00 with a super photo of his 2½ year old daughter, Isla. The hair shades the face from direct sunlight which is perfect for this natural and timeless looking portrait. When I look at photos of myself taken in the early 1970's when I was I child I look at them and think, 'Was that really me?'. Perhaps one day Isla will do the same. She is very lucky to have a father who is such a skilled photographer.

Thank you to everyone who entered one of the 197 entries. And we'd also like to thank the judge Lisa Alessandra Kutzelnig for choosing twenty of the finest photos which must have been difficult as there were so many excellent photos.

Congratulations to Andrea Spence ( facebook ) from the US who has won $868.00. Coastline photos can be so different from one day to another depending on the weather and the light. This photo captures a time when there is lots of movement and even though this is a single moment in time I can imagine the rolling waves and seagulls circling in the wind.

Well done to all of the winners and thank you to everyone who entered a photo. And of course we'd like to thank the judge Duncan MacArthur.
