Judges Comments

First Place – This edit does a great job of leveraging the content's pastel color palette to create a clean design that draws impact to each of the individual images while maintaining the composition of the entire page. It is a careful approach that doesn't fall into overcrowding the space and its subtlety lets the strength remain in the details of the photographer's work. Second Place – With such a large space to work with on this page, this image choice makes the most of it. At a smaller size, some of the detail and flow of the composition of the landscape might be lost. It lets the viewer take their time to look over the entirety of the scene and slow down, which is what good pictures and presentation should do. Third Place – We applaud the choice of an image that is a bit more challenging and creative than the standard weather image. It allowed the page to be built around the visual.
