Sabrena Rexing - A New Year

The judge’s paraphrased thoughts on why this image won:

A wonderful moment between father and son. There is a nice triangle between faces, fireworks and fading parallel lines leading from the bottom of the frame. The black and white processing furthered the image by highlighting the skin tones.

1st – Stormy Solo by Andrew Fritz

A Barn under Stormy Skies

The judge’s paraphrased thoughts on why this image won:

The big powerful storm clouds hovering over a tiny bastion of humanity in the form of a building create drama. The red contrasted against the heavy blue sky intensifies the drama.

The judge’s paraphrased thoughts on why this image won:

This is a great landscape photo. The photographer hit all the key elements. They were there at the right time of day (early morning presumably), during the right time of year (leaves changing) under the right conditions (mist rising over the creek). The composition is pleasingly broken into triangular elements.

2nd – Cambodian Mother and Child – Janet White

1st – The Eyes Have It by Keith MitchellThe Eyes Have In_Keith Mitchell

The judge’s paraphrased thoughts on why this image won:

Photos of babies are hard to make interesting to viewers beyond the friends and family context. This photo transcends that. While the lighting and post processing are good, what really makes the photo is the babies eyes. They are staring straight and intensely into the camera which creates a connection with the viewer.

2nd – Maty by Elizabeth Zimmerman
