Judges Comments

Small category that could have used tighter edits in submissions. 1st: Photographer did a good job of finding different areas to photograph and working the scene. Could benefit from narrowing down last three shots of just single firefighters – nice moments, but feel similar compositionally. 2nd: Nice job using layers to frame a scene. The cloudy/smokiness around the ladder making it look suspended in mid­air is a bonus. 3rd: Liked the last two frames most. Story could benefit from stepping back or getting in closer, as all frames have a similar focal length.
