Judges Comments

Overall a weak category, but the winners were obvious. The reflections and thoughtfulness in each photo made these pop. The tiny face made judges look twice and react strongly. The same goes for the crystal ball portrait, but the background could be cleaner and the image cropped in from the right. The glasses reflection tells the story well along with a strong caption.
