First place is awarded to Gary Miller. His photo of his wife working in the barn exhibited very good composition and lovely use of available light.
Second place is awarded to Miles Pfaff. His photo of harvesting on the palouse was shot from an interesting perspective. There were terrific lines in the photo.
Third place is awarded to Simone Metcalf. The evening light in the photo gives it an other worldly quality. It was very well composed.
