Our first competition was a great success. Josh Baker was our judge for the night. We had 25 entries and gave out 6 awards, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 3 honorable mentions. The winning images are below.
1st Place – Illuminate by Emily Crowell Steven
The judge’s paraphrased thoughts on why this image won:
It appeared to be the closest best execution of the photographer’s vision. The back lighting is well executed and not overdone. The skyline looks good with lots of star flares and the couples pose in an almost kiss is visually compelling.
