New England – September 2019 – Feature/Single

Judges Comments

Many of the stronger entries in this category were not afraid to play with layering and reflections. It was refreshing to see many photographers taking creative risks. 1st place: This image did a great job showcasing a “slice of life” for the season. Who tosses and catches a pumpkin one-handed? A fun moment between two subjects in their environment. 2nd place: This image stood out right away. The photographer captured a good perspective and by including the people in the corner helped show the circle’s scale. 3rd place: The layering and use of reflection is gorgeous, but it lacks connection. The image is missing a better view of someone’s face close up, especially since this is a great “slice of life” image in a community.
