The winning photo:

Guido Klumpe: ‘Everything is just right with this picture. The viewer’s eye is wonderfully guided here.
From the rugged and complex silhouette of the tree, you wander to the duck family and then explore the soft gradations of the mountains in the background. The image is delicate and powerful at the same time-congratulations in the first place!’

2nd place goes to … Iwan!

Guido Klumpe: What I particularly like about this image is the work with the layers and the wonderful colors. Although the picture is so minimalist, there are many structures and patterns to discover.
The composition is very clever and interesting because there is so little sky. Congratulations on second place!

3rd place is … Niki!

Guido Klumpe: I was immediately fascinated by the mysteriousness of this picture. Only at a second glance do you realize that it’s a drone shot on the beach. The colors are wonderful. Congratulations on your third place!
