Aaron’s comments are as follows:

Thank you to all of the judges who take time out of their busy schedule to vote in this contest. It continues to be a wonderful platform in helping us as photographers grow and a place for those of us stuck in the middle of nowhere Wyoming, to be exposed to work from all over the world.

I think the new platform for the contest looks beautiful and seems to have drawn even more attention.

The entry into this cabin immediately caught my eye for the way the owner had decorated it and for the lines of the logs and staircase. I knew that if I waited for the sun to reach the other side of the house, I’d have a good chance of getting the light that I envisioned. This is a single frame with no added light. I “scrimmed” the outside of the far window with 3 mm plastic sheeting to further enhance the soft, directional light. Overall, the beautiful house did the heavy lifting and I just shot it.

  • Congrats, Aaron … another great image! Well done!

  • Congratulations Aaron!!! Well deserved love that it was all ambient!

  • Lovely image, Aaron.. so nicely balanced. Sometimes suggestion can be more powerful than statement! It would be so good to see more RE marketing material include images with this more sensitive, editorial approach: full of mood and atmosphere but nonetheless confident and clear in its message. I just spent quality time on your website: thanks!

  • Great shot & lighting – going above & beyond with the ‘scrimming’ paid off big time, Aaron ! (I feel like a lazy photographer now.. ; )

  • Beautiful shot Aaron. Many congratulations!

  • Amazing job Aaron! Huge fan of your work! Congrats on another well deserved win!

  • Another awesome ambient! I swear you must carry a bag of that light around with you. Is it heavy? What sort of bag do you use?

  • Aaron – Congrats – I’m a big fan of the natural look and appreciate seeing it rewarded justly 🙂

  • Great shot Aaron, congrats again!!

  • Thanks everyone! Much appreciated.
