Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "This is a photograph of a window latch in the Palace of Versailles I took because it showed the extent of the ornate detail and grandeur of the palace. It's meaningful because it shows the extensive, luxurious life the royal family lived- something as simple as a window latch (the royals probably wouldn't even be opening themselves) has so much work and attention to detail put into it, juxtaposing the miserable lives the French people lived during the French Revolution."
