Judges Comments

First place went to a very candid portrait of a wayward man's day in court. It made the judges quiet collectively as we studied it. Second place portrait of a footballer on bleachers was admired for its simple minimalist composition. Some of us might not of even entered it which goes to show, one never knows what pleases the reader's eye, and Third was a beautifully composed portrait of two subjects in a calming place.
