National – March 2020 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

This was another strong category. The first-place image was very powerful and beautifully done. A lot of us were shooting images through windows at this time, but this image goes beyond and makes us feel something difficult in a beautiful way. We loved the second-place image too. A great find and well-composed frame that kept us looking. Third place was such a strong portrait as well.
