Judges Comments

First Place: Bad weather and bad backlight makes for a great photo that showed a wonderful moment. The player was fully engaged with the moment of the event, though not anyone else. And a wonderful composition. Second place: Inside some ill-lit gym and an overhead telephoto shot cleaned up the scene to allow the excitement shine through. Third place: Golf took third. Wait, what? Golf? Yeah. Great seeing a fleeting moment at the tee box of a foursome preparing to tee off. The moment fills the frame wonderfully.
