Lensbabies said: RememberRonni’s image combines engaging composition, motion blur, movements in multiple directions and several planes of subject matter. This image kept drawing us in through both the small thumbnail and the larger image. You feel close to something bigger than yourself when you view this image.
Second place goes to Kyrieleyson, who wins the Lensbaby 2.0, macro kit, the Lenspen pro and a baseball cap
Lensbabies said: Kyrieleyson 's image as a portrait would be an engaging photograph without blur, the blur in this image brings it into a place where eye contact is more pleasant and there is a depth that emanates from the blur that adds mystery to this image.
There is delicate detail in this image; the body, legs, antenna and wings on the butterfly placed in the centre of the picture are in beautiful contrast to the blurred smiling face which fills the background.
Well done to all the winners and to everyone who submitted an entry and gave us something beautiful to look at.
