Bernard Olsburgh – First Place in Just Two Colors

Bernard: "Water and abstracts are favorite subjects of mine. The shapes and patterns are never the same and each person will have their own interpretation."

Linda Easton-Saunders – First Place in Snail's Eye View

Linda: "This picture was taken in a nearby park while walking my dog. I put the phone on the ground to take this picture, pretending I was a snail looking through the leaves at the bench which must have seemed miles away to the snail."

Julian Alper – First Place in Reflection 

Julian: "I love to take photographs of Israel's wonderful flora and fauna. This bird is a purple heron that I saw in the Hula Valley, one of Israel's favorite sites for nature lovers. The heron was creeping towards a fish and no doubt reflecting on the lunch it was about to have."

Marcia Anouchi - Second Place in Silhouette

Marcia: "This photo is a man fishing just near the marina. It is always a calming feeling to listen to the rolling waves, look for the reflection of the sunlight on the water and the colors that appear in the sky as the sun sets." 

Victor Gallant – Second Place in Reflection

Victor: "Tall trees reflected in the lake at Raanana Park shortly before sunset." 

 Lina Filiba - Second Place in Things in Threes

Lina: "Finding Beauty Anywhere, Everywhere".
