Judges Comments

FIRST PLACE-The judges appreciated the expert separation of colors in the service of composition. The photographer managed to capture a storytelling moment by documenting the specific firefighting technique employed to fight the fire. SECOND PLACE-The photographer managed to convey a sense of the experience of the protestors by capturing a moment of genuine emotion and action. A single subject is featured with a supporting cast in the background. THIRD PLACE -Even though this photograph doesn’t capture the peak action of firefighting, the photographer managed to mold a more ordinary moment into a captivating scene through powerful use of color and basic graphics. Amid the organized chaos the photographer gives us a strong diagonal line of subjects, action, and graphics
