First place was another easy choice. Well executed and original concept. Maybe a touch hot on the toning, but very well done. Second and third place were tough, and largely because there weren't any images knocking down the door to be chosen. Second place was chosen over third simply because the execution was better. Third place was an original concept but the angle the photographer chose in shooting the reflection left undesirable elements in the frame... like an air conditioner. Judges were in agreement that it was great to see the unique vision, but it needed to be worked harder.
