Judges Comment

This is such a peaceful view with lovely colour tones, texture and lines keeping us looking. Maybe your crop is a bit tight on the foreground but that doesn’t distract too much from this lovely shot.

Photographers Comment

Thanks for this "Mark Of Excellence". My name is Micheline Deschênes. I am a travel photographer from Alberta, Canada. This photo represents the "Salar de Surire Natural Monument" at ~4,250 m altitude, a Chilean Natural Monument in the Andes located in the Arica y Parinacota Region. Salar de Surire Natural Monument is a protected area which includes areas of salt flats and highland ecosystems. This protected area, along with Lauca National Park and Las Vicuñas National Reserve, were designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1981. This photo was taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 equiped with a Leica badged lens. The only post-processing done was cropping for enhancing the landscape prospective view.
