West – January 2020 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

First place displays a beautiful control of light, with great texture, expression and everything else working in its favor, like details in the earrings. Second place was simply a gorgeous image. Third place had a great use of natural light. Fantastic use of color and beautiful composition, with attention to background details.
