NY/International – January 2018 – Sports Feature

Judges Comments

Again, winners rose to the top quickly but depth of options after the top three were pretty thin. First - Sometimes personality steals the show. In this case, a great moment maybe with a few compositional issues, still won us over instantly. Second - Great play of light, great take on a very common moment during a sports game. Kudos to photographer for recognizing potential and capture the moment in a different way. Third - Great moment of reaction enhanced by dramatic lighting. Photographer got both reactions, winner and looser.
