Death Valley, California.


Judge’s Choice: Death Valley, California
The dunes of California’s Death Valley seem formed by etched lines rather than windblown sand in this late-afternoon photo-graph by Samuel Feron of the hottest place on Earth.
But Frenchman Feron got fired up about photography in that clime’s antithesis, frosty Iceland.
Both places satisfy Feron’s passion for the pristine—landscapes offering spectacular forms that invite him to break the rules of traditional composition.
For his winning shot, Feron waited for the walking figure to reach the top of the dune. “It would have been the classical thing to compose with more empty space in front of him instead of behind,” Feron observes. “But because he seemed lost in thought, I wanted to create mystery by cropping out the area he’s walking toward.”
