National – May 2019 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

OHHH SNAP that first image is so good. The look, the sass, the composition, it has everything, even the guy waiting in the background. We LOVE everything about this photo. Second place was a really lovely portrait series, great job to the photog, it would've been stronger had you cut out about 4-6 of them to really make it sing, just because you shot all of them doesn't mean you have to include all of them. Third place is lovely and quiet.
