Midwest – December 2017 – Feature/Single

Judges Comments

First – The combination of light and action creates an immersive scene that immediately draws the viewer in. Second – Super clean composition leads the viewer right in to the moment. Shallow depth of field works nicely with the snow to bring some “winter magic” to the scene. The extended caption really added value to the image, created a deeper meaning. Third – A fleeting moment, a unique composition with a foreground that creates tension while also bringing your eye back to the moment. Black and white accentuates the geometry of the image which also helps to keep the eye flowing.
