  • Hi my name is David Innerhofer, I'm photographer and grafik artist based in Austria. I'm very honored you choose my shot. This one I shot with a DJI Phantom 4 pro, it was one of my first shots with a drone near my home at a farmers field in Bramberg, Salzburg. Post in Adobe Lightroom. Thank you! Peace!

  • This too is a great shot. A nicely composed landscape without a major subject but with beautiful light. You were drawn to this shot thanks to your appreciation of form, textures and composition, all essential to fine landscape photography. Well done indeed.

  • Nice find, it is not an easy one to pull off, and it might have been better, but your special vision has pulled you through.

  • Thank you for the award. This photo was taken this spring. It was shot with a canon 5d4 and a 70-300mm lens at 300mm.

  • Lovely tones and colour, nice light and shadow, and the off-centre tree makes it a little less classical.

  • You have caught the mood and light of this stunning misty morning making a very peaceful view, so easy to admire.

  • A very famous view from Iceland. We have one of Vestrahorn most rounds on this competition which wears away at the originality, but your shot is well taken and deserves its place in the top 10. It would take something very special of an iconic spot to win.

  • Nice play with the lines here. I love the ski tracks which cross over the trees’ shadows. Nice work, well done.

  • Well this may be disputed but it is the originality and odd angle of this shot which draws the viewer back, then the swirling vegetation and textures hold the eye. It is a provoking picture, totally out of the mainstream and quite remarkable. We would love more of these !

  • The contrast between the busy foreground and the distant void make this photo special. The lines of your composition lead the eye out into the empty distance. Lovely light and nice tree.

  • Nice landscape and an eye-catching panorama format. But it looks like late autumn, except oddly for the very green but half leafless birch…? An oddity indeed which kept you out of the top spots.
