Mid-Atlantic – January 2017 – Sports Action

Judges Comments

How many times do we un-fog our lenses when we shoot a swim meet in January and are lucky enough to get something after going through that ordeal? You have to crank through a lot of frames to get one just right like this 1st place winner. 2nd place wrestling photo was great and it stood out between all of the basketball dunk submissions. And we awarded 3rd place for the driving basketballer reflected in the shiny court wood. Some might have placed this one in the features category, but we encourage anything that's not of the ordinary to light up the newspaper or to drive page views on the web. Think outside the box is the cliche we might be looking for here.
