South – November 2019 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

Some interesting work here. We loved the haunting image of the woman sitting in the dirt, a clear first place. For second, the senior zoo citizens made us smile. We also thought that black and white was an excellent choice for toning. The lit portrait of a burn victim nicely showed the person's scars but also a bit of her optimism as a survivor.
