Judges Comments

The clear winner in our first place selection in this category benefited from the subject’s position and demeanor and the photographer’s effective use of light in a difficult environment. The second place image grew on us the more we looked at it, benefiting from a back of the frame focal point. Third was a telling scene-setter vantage of a tragic situation.
