Central – April 2020 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

Strong entries overall. First place winner nails this category with perfect isolation of the subject and exposure. Watch the overuse of vignetting. Second place winner shows a well-composed portrait of difficult situation in having to photograph the mother of the victim whose just been killed. Kudos to the photographer. Third place winner captures the precise moment of a beautiful human being with just the right amount of reflection. Very emotional great job. Strong entries overall in this category.
