Judge’s Feedback:

"This photo immediately evokes a deep and beautiful mood. I love how the dusk lighting in this picture is natural from a long exposure shot. It feels stark as if you're there by the beautiful swirl of the ocean and clouds. The photo has a bold stable clarity to it as well. " - Melissa

"This is a breath taking image with variations of blue present in different elements that compose this landscape shot. There is a sense of time lapse photography, due to the moving clouds, merged with serene landscape shot which makes this photo stand out!" - Rumaisa

"For me this photo evokes emotion effortlessly. It has beautiful composition and a striking, uncommon action occurring within the photo. I love how the subject is quite lit up in front of the stark, bold, deep blue background. It creates this feeling of depth, darkness, and eerie silence contrasted with lightness, grace, stillness, peace and poise. Unique shot overall." - Melissa
