West – January 2023 – Sports Feature

Judges Comments

Sports Feature winners each were rewarded for the photographers' ability to work the periphery of the event, finding unique moments outside the field of action. First place is photo we haven't quite seen before. The body position, proximity to the camera and lighting all worked together for an intriguing pre-game capture. Second place was very nice tender moment which we thought might have been enhanced by a slightly tighter crop. Third place featured terrific light and tonality.
