Miscellenous Finalists

Title: Wisconsin's Polar Express by Austin Evans This picture depicts the Wisconsin freight train making its nightly pass behind the Kohl center. During the first big snow this winter, I was lucky enough to be taking photos of the pristine snowy night when the train passed through Madison, and using a tripod, I took this exposure in black and white and thought it to be a lovely illustration of a snow storm in Wisconsin.

Second Place:

Title: NGC 2264 Rosette Nebula by Yizhou Zhang This is taken with a telescope on an equatorial mount, accumulative exposure is about 3 hours. The details of the nebula is clearly visible. This is the valentine’s day gift I presented to my fiancée!
