Judges Comments

The first place had a nice concept and executed it well. The second place was a nice moment with the two men, but could have used the windows to frame the subjects better. The third place is a fun and artistic image with good use of negative space. A lot of the other images were not executed well and needed to have more thought when using lights or framing.
