Judges Comments

Lots and lots of jube in this category. Sometimes we feel like jube should be considered action, but we also understand where it fits in this category. A lot of it was late, and therefore lacking peak emotion. A lot of it was blurry, or poorly composed, or boring. First and second were both great peak jube with overflowing emotion in faces and body language. First felt just a little more in both than second, but it was close. Third was very much an appreciation of the photographer seeing something other than the action and reaction. It works very well compositionally, tonally, and graphically. We liked the way the different angles of poles break-up the repetition and the varied body language gives a sense of variety.
