Ice beauties

Description: Cave in Haffner Creek, Canada

Judge’s Comments: After some fairly robust discussion, 2 out of 3 judges settled on this image as the category winner – it’s a stunning formation which lends itself to ‘artistic rendition’, but the execution is clearly carefully considered. The use of a low down wide-angle forces the perspective, creating leading lines and gives the image structure. The image could easily have been ruined by a bad treatment, so it’s great to see the photographer exercise some restraint in post production. Congratulations. (Simon Waterhouse)
