May ‘The Elegance of Nature’ comp: winners announced!
Congratulations to Sean Steininger who has won our May ‘Elegance of Nature’ photo competition with the image Circle of Life, as judged by our guest judge, photographer Michael Snedic.
Commenting on Sean’s winning image, Michael shared,
As soon as I saw this image, I had an instant reaction. Beautifully composed and subtle lighting made this image stand out, as well as the difficulty in achieving such an image while photographing underwater. Well done, Sean!
As winner, Sean will take home the Glen Grant ARBORALIS, 10YO and 18YO, valued at $295 thanks to our wonderful sponsor The Glen Grant.
Michael has also given a special mention to the following three entries:
