Finalist: Walkway to the West in the American high plains by Tammie Dooley of Tulsa, Okla. The judges, who would have picked this as the second-place winner, were struck its "great mood -- stormy, majestic, dramatic -- emphasized by the drama of black and white. It draws you in and pushes you away at the same time, challenging you intellectually." They found it emblematic of the high plains and prairies so unique to the American landscape. "The whole middle of the country is represented here," they said. (Tammie Dooley, via USA Today)
