HONORABLE MENTION: NORTHWEST SCENICS
Photographer: James Whelan, Kirkland
Photo taken: Oct. 19, 2012, aboard Bainbridge Island ferry
Photographer's description: "My family and I were heading out to Bainbridge Island and I happened to bring my Nikon D700 with me along with my tripod so I tried a long exposure of the ferry leaving Seattle."
Judge's comment: "Slowing the shutter speed just enough to show some motion without blurring the people or the skyline, as well as not overexposing, shows great execution. I love the symmetry and the 'poppy' colors."
