West – November 2018 – Feature/Single

Judges Comments

The first place photo is a great intimate moment documented from the migrants seeking asylum at the U.S. border. The photographer was comfortable to get close to the subjects during a stressful time. Just a style note, the photographer should clean up their cutline because it reads like a run on sentence. The second place photo feels more like a feature photo with the beautiful fall colors, as well as the composition and framing of the subject make an overall pleasant picture. The third photos is a really nice intimate moment between mother and child. It feels a little more newsy, but the judges thought we needed to include it.
