Judges Comments

The bluegrass musician in first place was a pristine image, beautifully and meticulously crafted. The second place image of the fashion director in Houston was just plain fun ­also very thoughtfully crafted. Third place of the toxicology professor was a clever approach and a great job of seeing.
