Judges Comments

  • Great light, great composition and the joy of the moment captured at just the right time.
  • Great lighting of this jovial scene. It’s like a dance started while the cake cutting was going on. Fun.
  • Look at the brilliant interplay of subjects and how artfully composed this image is. There is a lot happening at once here but it seamlessly gathers into the perfect silk purse of mood, feel, emotion - the moment. Compositionally sound with good subject to background separation, it’s hard to imagine a recreation. But, of course, nothing else feels (or resonates) like a true moment.
