Judge’s Feedback:


“When you see this image, it’s hard to fault anything in it at all! The focus, vibrancy, clarity are all on point in this image. Most importantly the shot captures different shades of trees against natural backdrop of the skies. It looks so realistic that the viewer almost feels a part of this scene.” - RumaisaCoinaPhoto team member.


Insight from the winner:


“The photo was taken during Fall season in Inyo National Forest, June Lake Loop, California. I love taking long drives along scenic routes with loved ones and my best bud - my camera. I came across this place while driving through June Lake Loop. It was sunny, trees were making the route look lovely, lighting it up with golden sunlight with just perfect intensity. I tried to capture the same untouched picture at the moment to put this beautiful memory in mind”. - Sumit
