West – December 2020 – Sports Feature

Judges Comments

Slim pickings in this category. Composition of the first place image really worked to emphasize scale; the humorous aspect made it a shoo-in for first. Second place, the expression and body language was great, although the crop could have been perhaps tighter, and the background was sadly terrible. Could you photograph down the court from behind the baskets so there is more separation between subject and background and it falls off more? Third place, we thought this could have been an "action" photo but the nice light and color gave it a pictorial quality and we were fine recognizing it as a feature too.
