South – January 2018 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

There were some really creative poses and we appreciate the effort put forth in this category. First place had a great pose that seemed to mean the photographer spent more time with their subject. Second place had great execution for a tough assignment. And for third place we liked the extra effort of the writing but felt the portraits themselves needed just a little something extra.
