Judge's Comments: I find this manipulation of a photo – or photos - to be an interesting and creative manner of using photography as an art form that goes beyond.
P003 "Golden Glow"
Judge's Comments: Photography nowadays isn’t necessarily just what the camera “sees”. I don’t know how this image was produced but I find it a very beautiful and creative way to use photography to celebrate a gorgeous cactus flower emerging from its spiny “mother”.
P004 "Zebra Times Three"
P005 "Giant Argentine Cactus"
Judge's Comments: This photo by the photographer of a “Giant Argentine Cactus” is a pure celebration of the beauty of this cactus plant.
