Judges Comments

We only had four entries, which is surprising to us. That said, the three images which placed each have something to bring to the table. First place is clean and graphic. Props to the photographer for taking time on a potentially hectic scene to slow down, think and compose graphically. Second place is an odd and quirky frame with elements that elevated it to second place. These elements include the sense of place with the signs and main street stretch, the ladders and broken fence. That said, it's not the most compositionally sound. Third place does a nice job of stepping back and giving us a sense of scene. Good editing, incredibly well-exposed and and the sign adds to the photo.
