I was impressed not only with the overall talent and innovation of the submissions, but that I noticed a solid prevalence of images made at an intimate scale in the landscape and portrait genres. It was almost like the photographers were deliberately going in closer and deeper and with intense concentration on the classic, old-school magic of the genre -- showing us back to ourselves, personal experiences, just real human life on the planet. It was a moving experience for me!
