West – April 2017 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

Out of the entries, the first place photograph said the most about the subject. This stood out because it conveys a sense of honest emotion that we didn't see in other portraits. We really liked that the photographer of the second place image took a silly approach to illustrate what otherwise could have been a basic portrait. The third place photograph stood out from others because of its technical excellence with nice lighting and clean composition.
