With this selection, 13 superb photographers have been showcased. I’m proud to announce our 13th finalist Konrad Blum, a South-African photographer who specializes in landscape photography. Konrad has something going for him that few of our contestants have – a style. He has a recognizable style and it’s a good one. His images really pop and he’s masterfully selected compelling subjects. His work is wonderful.
