Judges Comments

  • This image grabbed me the first time I saw it and I laughed so hard. The tension is great and you have certainly captured the moment. The foreground framing lets the viewer feel as if they have almost intruded into the moment. The natural lighting is excellent and the exposure on the faces and narrow depth of field makes the image.
