New England – December 2023 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

First place rose to the top and stayed there for its creatively and framing. The judges felt second place really captured the subject's personality and humor. Third place was a solid image with a clean background and sense of personality from an assignment we've all be at. Trying to make a portrait when the thing the subject does or wants to do isn't there.
