1st place

"Paris, la Défense" by Thomas Fisher.


Judge's comments
La Grande Arche de la Defense is a monument and building in the business district of La Défense to the west of Paris, France. Usually it is known as the Arche de la Défense or simply as La Grande Arche.
I have already spent some time visiting 'La Défense' and know the building very well.
The photo of Thomas is very deserving because he succeeds in order to create a unity, almost perfectly balanced and this from a chaotic canvas.
The position of the photographer here is really important, and that is not obvious at this point.
It seems like a butterfly and the cables at the top are the feelers on the imagined head of the insect.
I admire the photographic eye of the author to notice this symmetry, capture and framing out.


2nd place

"interior" by Anna Klinkosz.
 Judge's comments
It is a perfect minimalist image of an interior in high-key mode.
I suppose it is a detail of a staircase in a museum.
The lines are very flattering and flowing. It remains a pleasant look piece. The curved lines end as a kind of eye ... like a symbol for each museum ... because there is 'watching' the main verb.
The handrail displays at the start of the final piece of the viewing direction. It is a necessary part of the picture and makes the place recognizable.
A perfect composition and lighting with beautiful gray tones.
3rd place

"Gehry architecture,seatlle…" by Randall Ostenhuber.
Judge's comments
Again, I am charmed by the unity of the image.
Especially the rich, warm color palette is a feast for the eyes.
Gehry is known for his use of metal wall coverings. This always gives a varying effect during the changing light and weather conditions of the day.
The use of soft tones is a good choice. The cloud structure enriches the picture and gives dynamism to the simple composition.
