Judges Comments

The judges found it a bit difficult to judge sports action and sports feature in the same category, but felt this was the strongest and most unusual moment, both because of the size difference of the combatants and the seemingly purposeful poke to the eyes. Judges wished the caption had better explained the moment. Judges really like the second place photograph for its composition and expression and had a difficult time choosing between first and second place. Finally decided that the wrestling picture was a more unusual moment. The third place photograph was also named State Wrestling and is an excellent wrestling action photograph with key action and expression and good use of shallow depth of field.
