South – August 2019 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

First place was the best attempt at creating a story with each image saying something different along the lines of a fuller narrative. We weren't sure about the rules for including a diptych and it visually through us off, otherwise, we were glad to see the photographer show up for a variety of experiences in the subject's life. Second place had some nice moments but still lacked visual variety for what would consummate a well rounded essay to move a narrative forward. Would like to see some details, varied lensing and broader setting/context. The other entries needed to work on edit and basic composition and moment.
