Second Place: Alanna St.Laurent, "Church Fog"
Third Place: Gina Soden, "Blue Orphanage"

- JP Terlizzi
The winning entries were very unique in their presentation of abandoned structures and objects. The use of color to compensation for any feelings of desertion in some of the images was well played by the photographers. The buildings portrayed are somewhat strangely appealing to the viewer as they arouse our interests and curiosities. The empty suitcase is the perfect symbol of what is left behind and abandoned. In contrast the two images displayed in black and white exhibit the austerity and emptiness of abandonment. We congratulate the finalists and express thanks to all participants!
