Prize Winner 

Bohinj Lake, Slovenia, by Aleš Krivec 

“This is a striking photo that instantly stood out to me. It’s not just the varied spectrum of colours and detail that the photographer has managed to capture, but the clever way in which the pier, walkway and boats are used to lead the eye in a zig zag across the whole image to the church and orange/red clouds in the background”. – Jean-Paul

Ales was also kind enough to share his story behind the photo. “I was on my way to the Julian Alps to hike the Valley of the seven lakes. Once I arrived to Bohinj I noticed how the sky was getting purple and I decided to make a short stop to take some images. The three boats and the pier make a nice line leading towards the church and with great colours in the sky, the image turned our pretty good”. 

The image was more than pretty good Ales, it was a Winner!

  

Finalist 

Lake Bled, Slovenia, Aleš Krivec

It’s not often a photographer has more than one photo make it into a final. 

“This picture is so majestic that it almost evokes fairy tales. The pastel tons of the image echo the cold season it was taken on. This piece of land clustered between the snowy mountains and the cold lake looks like a lonely planet of its own kind!”. – Lilia

 

Finalist 

Main square in the morning mist, Croatia, by Rinaldo Berovic

“An unique photo where the photographer where the choice of monochrome and the morning mist has created a kind of ghostly look. It feels like I’m looking at a snapshot of a bygone era, like looking into the past”. – Jean-Paul
