New England – July 2023 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

Several strong portraits. The first place had a beautiful location, lighting, nice composition, and framing. The second place was a really interesting setting for a portrait, captured beautifully. Third place was a good performance photo, with great expression captured.
