Judges Comments

1st was great reaction by the photographer to grab the wide and capture the peak action. Nice action, gestures, composition. 2nd is a well-done action image--nice and tight, sharp, and peak. We chose this as second instead of first because the 1st place image was a little more unique. This image is very good, but more typical of a game action shot. 3rd great faces. Unfortunately, they're a dime a dozen with volleyball. HM was just a nice jube shot that we enjoyed.
