South – September 2017 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

1st Place ­ #3 was our favorite image in the series of 6 images. Cool idea well executed. The baby photo stops you cold when you look at it. 2nd place made us laugh. Red socks are hard to work into to an effective portrait but the photog pulled it off. Again 3rd place was hotly debated. In the end the overwhelming context of the priest in the rubble out weighed the eye catching image of a hurricane survivor with his flag.
