New England Region – May 2016 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

1st - Cool little story on the Chelsea Road Rally. A nice variety of images and some outstanding moments. The edit could have been re-worked a bit, but overall a solid group of images. 2nd - The closing of the last dairy farm in New Hampshire was solid. Would have maybe liked to have seen images of the owners at the end of the day. We just missed the emotion in what had to have been a sad day. 3rd - The alternative school story had a lot of interesting angles, framing of subjects, etc., but what it was missing was moments. Nearly every image was of kids either looking down or looking out. Nothing with any interaction. The photographer obviously spent a lot of time working on this essay, but from this edit, it looks like the photographer was shooting more for style than substance. Show us more next time.
