Judges Comments

  • Here's a photo that rests in the confidence of a moment. Moments are the life blood of great photojournalism. They don't require a great deal of technical fuss other than abiding by the "laws" of basic photography. However, they do ask us to be sensitive and aware. They ask us to notice. Simply said, this image is a wonderful moment "noticed."
