The Grand Winners of the Natural Landscape Photo Awards

 We can find numerous jaw-dropping landscapes online in minutes. Many of these photos are too good to be true. Yet, we rarely stop and think if they are indeed real or heavily edited. This new landscape photography contest goes against the mainstream and only allows “natural” photographs in their lineup: no photo editing, compositing, distorting, or combining permitted!

As the Natural Landscape Photography Awards write on their website, they have created the contest for artists who “value realism and authenticity in their work.” And we must say, this approach makes perfect sense and is quite refreshing!
