Northwest – February 2024 – Portrait

Judges Comments

Limited entries in the Portrait category, but our three choices all seemed to best convey the essence of the subjects. The first award's unique angle and framing inclined us to want to learn more about the image. Second award is a quiet, revealing image helped by nice natural light. Color and light elevated the third place winner as well.
