Juror Statement: 
I feel all of the photographs in this exhibition deserve an Honorable Mention, however, Amy said it wasn’t a good idea. What we have here is a stunning selection of photography; from still life to portraiture, landscapes, to wildlife, and so much more. I truly enjoyed the variety of genres in this show.  ~ Garry Rose
1st Place: Fillies on a Frolic
I like the dynamic motion of the horses. Conveys the feeling of freedom and olden days. 
2nd Place:  Fall’s Last 
What impressed me was the unexpected imagery for a still life along with the use of vibrant color.
3rd Place: Thunder Road
Very striking image.  A real eye-catcher. Elicits emotion. 
Honorable Mentions:
Ice Princess  I liked the juxtaposition of the red dress against the white ice fall. Interesting combination of colors. 
New Melle Prayer  Striking with a ghostly atmosphere. Makes the viewer Intrigued. Makes me want to step into the photograph.
Ghost Horses  The dynamic of the motion is wonderful. Well done composition and well done print. 
Agave Study  What can I say, I love the imagery of the plant, the way it was photographed and captured.
Go Ahead…Make My Day   An excellently executed portrait.
Hero of Today   Excellent photograph of one of our everyday heroes. Like the color saturation and pose.  
About the Juror:  "Classic photography never goes out of style." Longtime professional photographer, Garry Rose, creates all of his photography "In the Camera". His images are never digitally altered. A master of color & lighting, Garry's works are deeply saturated, brilliant and rich in color. Garry shoots predominantly in color silver halide films, infra-red and slides. As a commercial photographer, Garry has an extensive portfolio also. Garry has expanded his photo art to include digital photography which is never altered from the original moment of capture. Sometimes, after creating the image, many of his digital images files are destroyed, making the images truly one of a kind.
