Mid-Atlantic – August 2017 – Sports Feature

Judges Comments

This category had 18 entries. Three stood out right away. The rest were quite weak. Mostly just images that weren't really feature moments and if there was potential it wasn't captured. First place is a nice slice in time which offers the viewer a genuine feeling of the room that doesn't feel effected by the photographer. Second place is a great graphic image that's well composed and even if cropped was good insight to see the crop. Third place was the best for the situation which was unique and amusing. We would have liked it to be cleaner and composed more around the 2 main subjects, but again, was a quick reaction to something that probably didn't last long.
