Mid-Atlantic – November 2021 – Sports Feature

Judges Comments

Three good, captured moments won points in the sports feature category. The elation felt in the first photograph captured the scene from the sidelines as the team rushed onto the field. Many photographers would have focused on the field instead. The second place photograph had too much depth of field for our liking but the moment, framing, and composition helped it get to second place. Every player shared the same feeling of grief and compassion. In third place, there’s another good moment of grief captured but we would have chosen to crop out the girl in the background.
