Winner's Story:

"A peaceful hike turned into beautiful art. A sight like I've never seen before." - Flow

Judge’s Feedback:

 

“This shot is simply breathtaking. The shot seems to be taken right before sunset. The blue horizon is naturally giving way to subtle shades of purple. Despite the darkness that spreads through at this time of the day, Flow still manages to capture every tiny detail of this majestic scene. The viewer is able to see several shades of purple reflected in this natural scene.” – Rumaisa

“I like the colour and composition of this photo. In my opinion, the purple color is hard to find in natural sorroundings. In addition, the photographer might not have used a filter. This is an amazing moment in a suburban area!" –Dika

Location: Zaarour, Lebanom

"A beautiful scene! The photographer has taken her shades of purple very seriously here. The lavenders match the girl's outfit, who seems to be overjoyed. A joyous moment indeed! " - Rumaisa
