Judges Comments

  • Talk about using every possible inch of the frame. This picture is all about the moment. The garter is in the perfect position. It's red. It pops. As you look around the frame you notice that not one of the subject's eyes are blocked. Fingers frame eyes. Arms frame eyes. But everyone has an eye on the prize. The one thing I might find fault with is the exposure is a bit hot, but I can live with it for such as great moment frozen in time. The composition is good and it is peak action - I really liked where the garter was caught in the frame. Terrific moment.
