1st place, "My personal dream" by Dragana Trajkovic.

Judge's comments
This image captivated me from the first moment, and although it was hard to decide there was never any doubt that this photo was one of the favorites. I think this is a very nice macro scene in good coordinated colors. The composition is good and the rain adds something extra.
2nd place, "Mantis in yellow" by Raffaella Coreggioli.
Judge's comments
This is also a very harmonious and well-image. The colors match well and it is interesting to see how well it is camouflaged. good sharpness and with a fine and diffuse background that highlights the subject well.
3rd place, "Goldeneye" by Katrin Benary.
Judge's comments
I think this is a very beautiful and evocative image. I really like the use of the limited depth of field that is helping to bring the good mood. Also think it is well composed.
