Judge’s Feedback:

"The shape of the bottle, reflected backdrop in focus and blurred background with sweet sunset colours are the key points to this successful still life photo." - Yana

"This photo is absolutely divine. The photographer combines the element of still life photography with landscape photography. The reflection of the majestic landscape, during sunset, in the bottle symbolises the importance of minute objects used to paint a story that stands out. Incredible colour contrast and apt use of aperture!" - Rumaisa

"Pastel colours and this vintage ambience of past times make this photo attractive to a viewer's eyes." - Yana

"There's something about this photo that silently demands the user to view the bigger picture. While one can only see a mere clock in a dusty old window frame, there's more to this photo that we don't know about. It's reminiscent of something lost over time." - Rumaisa

Photographer: Mehdi Sanaeo

Location: Nowshahr, Iran
