Judges Comments

  • Love the juxtaposition between the two faces. Black and white really brought out the lines of the woman's face on the right and lets the viewer know she's got lots of stories to tell.
  • Lovely, lovely image of the bride and what I presume is her grandmother. Each arch of the heads leads you to another arch which leads the viewer to the final encompassing arch of the church. The arm of the bride creates an angle to slice the entire image in two. Very well composed and yet the emotion and connection of the subjects hits the viewer first.
