National – February 2018 – Sports Action

Judges Comments

In a category dominated by poorly lit high school basketball gyms, these three pictures jumped out at us immediately, and in the case of our first-place entry, jumped off (props to the photographer for putting themselves near the skier and waiting for the right moment. The second-place picture is a lovely peak-action picture that showed initiative and planning by the photographer. Our third-place selection is a crazy amalgamation of blue jeans and brown cows, and we loved every part of the chaos.
