1st place- #3. I love that you found the top of the tower in a spot that is not common. Training your mind to find objects in unconventional ways is a great way to expand your creativity. Great work!
2nd place- #8. This is a great use of unique perspective. Though it might be common to the animal / object to see things from this particular perspective, this view is not often seen by many. Stellar shot! Keep finding the out of the box angles!
3rd place-#2. A textbook method of leading lines and sunflare! If the leading lines weren't bring my attention to something/someone/etc, this wouldn't be as strong of an image. Good job picking out the sun and capturing the flare! Keep applying technical methods to your creative shots, you will come up with amazing images like this!
