Central – April 2017 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

This category was tough, and in the end, we decided only two entries were strong enough. For every category, but especially this one, we looked for images that were unique and eye catching. First place: We chose this image because of the mood and the focused lighting. The old building in the dark part of the frame is interesting to look at too. Over all this image stood out among all submission because the photographer thought outside of the box and created something different. Second place: The subject in this photo breaks the symmetry of the curtains well. The lighting is good and the subject is posed well. It is obvious the photographer took a lot of time and care with creating this image.
