The Juror for this exhibit is Australian based conservationist and photographer Dave Watts, who has been published by National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Geo (Germany), Geo (Australia), Australian Geographic, Airone, Nature Australia, and many other publications. By going beyond the ordinary to get his shots he has created beyond ordinary images that capture the entire feeling of atmosphere (and I mean sounds and air temperature!) surrounding his subject!
