Judges Comments

  • Very clever.  Technical is excellent--it could have been sharper, that’s true, but in this case that could have hurt the image. The soft nature of it emphasizes the dreamy quality of the situation.  Great lens selection.  This works because it has room to breathe.
  • This image involved creativity, planning and perfect execution. The couple illuminated in the separate elevators were placed perfectly against the graphic of the building.
