South – January 2017 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

The fist place series offered the best storytelling that wasn’t an event. It definitely should have been edited tighter. One or two weak images should have been removed (05 and 01). We would suggest reordering the images too to give variety in focal range. Second place images were strong, really strong. Again, should have been edited tighter. The creative layering within the images was very pleasing to the eye. Third place of the women’s march again could have been edited tighter. A good visual variety of mood, emotion and place.
