Judges Comments

  • The expression on the man's face and the concentration make this one work. The overall warm tone/colors humanize it too. I am not sure about the tilted frame. A straight horizon would probably enable the photographer to crop out the black blob in the upper right corner and crop out some of the shoulder on the lower right, which is so bright it draws the viewer way.
