South – September 2023 – Sports Action

Judges Comments

Most of the entries within the sports action captured peak action. The few things that set apart the winners from the rest in the category was that they not only showed peak action but the demonstrated great technical skills in capturing the play with clean framing. 1st place demonstrated great composition with action that was elevated by the clean background and seeing the anticipation in the player's face. 2nd place captured a unique moment that photographers often miss. A simple run turned out to be an intense moment between the players as photographer followed the play through. 3rd place was clean and intense.
