FIRST PLACE:

 

Eric Bourke, Architecture, "Tre Cime"

 

"Long exposure shot of the Tre Cime in the Dolomites of Italy"

 

SECOND PLACE:

Sam Wong, Construction Management, “Slice of Time”

 

“I took this photo while on a bike ride in Palm Springs. I spent a week there during winter break and I knew I had to capture a photo of the classic mid-century modern environment. I took this photo on a Canon AE-1 with Portra 400.”

THIRD PLACE:

Sofia Ilic, Architecture, “Reflective Guest”

 

“Tom Saraceno's installation in the courtyard of Palazzo Strozzi creates a new perspective for its host.”

 

HONORABLE MENTION:

 

Zack Pasma, Architecture, "Tall Boy"

 

“This photo was taken during my 3rd year double-quarter trip to Seattle. This was by far my favorite place to visit. I had seen so many photographs prior of the Space Needle, but it was really something to see it in person. This shot was taken right before entering!”

HONORABLE MENTION:

Katherine Nguyen, Architecture, “Encircle”

 

“I captured this moment while at the temple for Lunar New Years last year. I was exploring the place when I saw this older woman peacefully sitting outside. I loved how the citcle framed and diffused light and so I quickly snapped the shot on my phone.”
