Judges Comments

  • Robert Capa once said, “If your pictures aren’t good enough you aren’t close enough.” This photo is successful because of the closeness and low angle that it was shot. Not only is it framed nicely giving you a feeling of being there but it also has a range of emotion from the groomsmen to the groom. Delightful moment!
  • I've seen a lot of "guys drinking beer" photos but this one really brought me to the moment through lens choice and angle. It creates a feeling of being there. "Pass me a beer please. I'll have a Corona Light."
