Black & White Print of the Year

Marshall Point 5. Bill Gordon POTYMarshall Point#5 by Bill Gordon

Maine is one of my favorite places and we visit at least once a year.  Marshall Point Light, made famous in Forest Gump’s cross country walk, is near our family cottage and I have photographed it from many angles over the years but usually around dawn.  This image was made mid-afternoon while showing some friends around.  Fortuitously, there were a few clouds within the frame in an otherwise cloudless sky.  I liked the contrasty light on the pure white keeper’s house and thought of B&W when I made the image. ~Bill G


Color Print of the Year

Say Cheese_RConsunjiSay Cheese by Rosemarie Consunji

I took this image in the pathway that connects the WTC Path Station with Brookfield Place in downtown Manhattan. This underground passage has a gigantic LED billboard that rotates through a series of video advertisements. A “Cheetos” ad caught my attention as it featured the bright orange Chester the Cheetah walking through a museum with sculptures made from Cheetos. The premise of the ad fit perfectly against the white marble of the walkway. True enough, some passersby were stopping to gawk at the cheesy statues as they flashed on the screen! I lucked out with this shot of a solo person positioned in a clear space between two cheese figures because most of the images I took of that scene had people randomly positioned in the photo and blocking the display. ~Rosemarie C.

Digital Image of the Year

This image was made along Li River in southern China. After a disappointing sunrise, I focused on what was available and do my creative best with it. ~Chaula V.
