Portrait and illustration category was weak, one entry was missing caption completely, a few others weren't informative enough about subject. Many had technical flaws. Winners all displayed strong aesthetics and told something about the subject. We wish father and son had more caption information, but still rose to first thanks to technical soundness and natural, telling moment.
