South – September 2016 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

We felt this category was definitely one of the weaker categories in this region. First place had nice character throughout the frame that helped tell the story of the neighborhood. Second place was just a clean nicely lit portrait. We thought the backlighting was interesting. Third place was a nice collection of fashion images. We thought the last photo in the series brought it down, though.
