2nd Prize, split: " ... clouds over ... " by Heinz Schmid (Switzerland)
What makes looking at the clouds so fascinating? One reason is probably the constant change of the celestial formations, which creates a lot of room for fantasy and illusion. And just as clouds are constantly changing in correspondence with wind and scenic backdrop, the object ensemble by the Swiss artist Heinz Schmid is also highly dynamic and fascinating.

1st prize: "The suspension bridge in the cloud" by Aleksei Dmitriev (Russia)
