Results- October 2016

October’s competition was open (no theme). Our guest judge was Keith Mitchell.

Class 1

We had 20 class 1 entries with 5 awards (1st, 2nd and 3rd, 2x honorable mention).

1st – Wedding Singer by Kimberly Fore


I gave this photo 1st place because it had emotional impact and caused me to imagine a powerful story. Technically, the close cropping and effective use of shallow depth of field added to the impact of the image.

2nd – See the Ring by Ashley Piel


3rd – Secret by Kimberly Fore


Honorable Mentions

Class 2

We had 12 entries in class 2 with 3 awards (1st, 2nd and 3rd). The winning images are below.

1st – Red on Red by Andrew Fritz

Tacticon 2016

I gave this photo 1st place recognition because it showed dramatic use of directional lighting as well as composition. The almost solid red tone throughout was both creative and impactful.

2nd – The Mystery of Space by Sirrah Lore


3rd – Davis Sunrise by Steve Coyle
