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.
