National – March 2020 – Sports Action

Judges Comments

We struggled with this category. Really wanted to see more than the tight 300 mm sports action photo and a more compelling and storytelling image. First place was a good image that captured the story of the game. Second place was another nice image. Wish the background added more to the image. The third place image was a unique view and not the typical remote camera shot. A few photos in this category should have been in Sports Feature category. They would have done well there.
