Central – November 2017 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

This was a difficult category to judge, with a high percentage of well­ executed portraits. The top several rose quickly. First place was a strong, emotionally engaging and nearly perfectly lit and composed moment. Second won us over for being technically well­ executed while still having the feel of spontaneity. Third place was a good series of location portraits but really could have been edited for the strongest portraits and reduce redundancy.
