National – May 2019 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

For us, the Peru story was a clear winner by far. It was well thought out, beautifully sequenced and edited. Photos 8 and 9 are brilliant. Superman was really well shot but could have used a better edit, you have a couple of photos that get repetitive, like several graduation photos and prom ones you don't need. Peru daily life was also well shot, really lovely sequencing.
