Her image features a field of sunflowers, with just one flower facing the camera. A visually stunning image with the caption “You are unique.”. Congratulations on this wonderful image Chien!

Winning first place and a Hanazono Zipline Experience and Mt. Lights Experience is Jack Yan – @jackyanphotography !

This was a clear favourite with the judges, and is a simply incredible image. The field of wheat with a single bird perched atop a pole has great lighting, tone, great point of interest, and captures a great moment.

Well done Jack, this is an image to be very proud of!

Congratulations again to all the winners and we’re looking forward to next Summer!
