West – May 2017 – Sports Action

Judges Comments

1st) We thought this was a clear winner!Great framing. The moment is spectacular. All of the elements that tell a story are here in this frame. Great image! 2nd)­ Very clean frame that freezes the action quite nicely. The elements of a story are here and we think the cropping is a great adjustment, leaving out distracting elements. 3rd)­ great moment! We awarded 3rd because we felt the moment was great, but the composition/cropping could be tighter. The emotion would be much more powerful if just a bit tighter. Great storytelling image.
