  • This is a marvelous shot of a beautiful flower shown in an artistic way. The high contrast which gives this photo a theatrical appearance works totally in its favor. The flower itself in pale shades of pink, set agains a dark and rich background. This flower is abstract, but still recognizable. A big thank you goes to the photographer for submitting such a wonderful photograph!

  • Dreamy yet fierce, the strong orange and red in this photo draws in the observer. We like how these poppies are isolated from a background. It is almost like a painting. Well seen and executed.

  • This artistic photograph needs special recognition! Not only is the framing very well done, also having fragments of colour in it, makes it a pleasant work to look at it. Again, and again.

  • My gratitude goes to the judge. The original image of the flower was shot with an Olympus Digital Camera. The post processing is done on a Sony Tablet. I take a low res image into Photoshop Touch and apply the Acrylic Paint function, changing the size, jitter and length. I then save to gallery. Then open the flower image in Superimpose, and follow with the Acrylic Paint Image. Then I have about 12 blending modes from which I can choose. Most times I save several and choose from them as to what I print. Some images have as many as 4 images combined.

  • Having this lovely delightful image set on a black background, brings out its features strikingly and strong. It is delicate and the white butterfly underlines the mood of this moment.

  • A lovely and soft focus brings out the beauty of these blossoms. The water drop makes this an interesting photo with an unusual story to it.

  • Cami Lind Atikokan, Ontario Canada. I used my Canon 70D with my Tamron 90mm macro. It had just rained and my neighbour has a beautiful flowering crabapple tree. I couldn't resist capturing the raindrops on these delicate blossoms. Post processing in Lightroom for clarity, colour and highlights.

  • Could be a scene from a different planet! This ant is the main character to this story and we are loving it! A fun photo with a twist.

  • Almost insect-like creeps this flower from one side of the image to the other. We like how it is shown in a horizontal way, instead of vertical. Has a bit of an underwater photo image.
