    Judge's Comment: "The ebb and flow of rhythmic patterns gracefully support this superb rendering, and one feels a keen presence of filtering light over a wide range of softly defined values. Add the variety of meticulously rendered textures over the modeling of the animal and one feels a true sense of life, mass, and depth in a composition inviting us to explore over and over."
