Sunset - Bill Down
Judge: Jerry Atnip Total Score: 90
Technique: 30 Impact: 30 Composition: 30
Engaging, impactful image captured at the right moment. The viewer is drawn to the water first and then allowed to wander gathering all the visual surprises in time. Be careful to not go any further in your processing choices. I see hints of your manipulation starting to show slightly. Some white borders on the two rocks in the bottom left. Overall a successful image that allows the viewer to feel, smell and hear this location as if they were there.

Fireworks - Tom Buckard
Judge: Jerry Atnip Total Score: 89
Technique: 29 Impact: 30 Composition: 30
This is a very "painterly" use of a long exposure. Fireworks can be difficult both in timing and interest, but they also provide challenges in proper exposure coupled with the correct length of exposure to provide the movement that you want. I feel you nailed that exposure time. The exposure challenge is in the fact that the amber whips streaks are beautifully subtle while the more dominant colors have a tendency to blow out a bit. Your composition is well balanced leading your eye around the frame. Good execution of a difficult image.

Carnival - Julie S Johnson
Judge: Jerry Atnip Total Score: 84
Technique: 28 Impact: 29 Composition: 27
Well executed demonstration of long exposure. I would prefer to see you capture this image a bit earlier in the evening. Try shooting when the sky is a slight bit darker than the rides to bring in more detail to the overall image.

Judge: Jerry Atnip Total Score: 75
Technique: 26 Impact: 23 Composition: 26
Nice long exposure technique. Check for lens barrel distortion. Also there seems to be a bit of chromatic aberration and the image could use a bit more contrast.

This image has a strong three dimensional appeal to it. The wide tonal range is used throughout to heighten the textures of the building, water, rocks, fences, trees, etc. Watch the blown highlights in the water.

Peaceful Pavilion - Jerry Wieland

Technique: 27 Impact: 26 Composition: 25
Long exposure gives this image the feeling that they could walk on ice. Cropping out the right side just to the left of the concrete would give you a nice symmetric composition. Then crop a bit of the bottom off.

Technique: 28 Impact: 29 Composition: 29
Very nice composition of what is typically shot straight. The dutch angle as well as the tight cropping and pool reflection all add up to make this a dynamic composition.

Gesture can make or break an image and in this case it made the image. You have great gesture in the rider and the horse. Along with a beautiful light and perfect exposure, this is a success. I wouldn't have minded seeing just a bit more of the horse's lower body.
