Mid-Atlantic – July 2017 – Sports Feature

Judges Comments

Small but strong category. There were many good photos we had to let go that we wanted to keep. 1st: This is a great found moment that the photographer spent time looking for – you had to look away from the action and put your telephoto down to get this shot, which we appreciated. That said, if you’re this close, get those names!2nd: The tight crop and angle works really well here. Different moment in practice that caught our eye.3rd: Another fan shot gives a completely different feel to the fan shot with its moody contrasty tones. Not a sport we see fan shots of often.It gives insight to the style and personality of the spectators of horse racing.
