West – June 2020 – Feature/Single

Judges Comments

1. The fists on the wall add a great pop of color and the audience is able to understand the context of the photo and that it's from BLM. It's a positive photo and the color scheme works nicely. Captures a nice moment. 2. The photo is well focused and you can still see the board and waves even though it's an action photo. It's well lit and it's cool to capture a moment of a surfer before hitting the water. 3. The contrast of the red fire and the black hillside looks good. The eyes of the owl pop out and spook the audience.
