National – March 2017 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

Portraits dominated this category. First place uses just the right amount of background to add context to the story. Good lighting separates the subject, but leaves space for the eye to roam to important detail. Second place connects simple elements that are important to the story. Clean composition makes the pictures interesting. Third place combines nice light and a moment.
