Judges Comments

  • The repetition of their bewildered faces is great. Nice and clean background that makes their faces stand out.
  • Again, good layering and excellent seeing. The moment is more subtle in this one, but it is there. The photographer had to be close to get this shot and it was obvious there was a great comfort level that had developed between subjects and photographer. Nice Image.
  • Excellent photojournalism is about making beautiful images of wonderful moments. This image is a wonderful moment that perfectly captures the confusion on everyone's faces as they attempt to add the final detail to their wardrobes. I think an man who has ever been part of a wedding party could relate. The light is nice, and the composition works well.
