Judges Comments

  • Nice stopped action on this awkward moment with the cake that includes the reaction of one of the band members behind them. Nice framing and sense of place.
  • What I liked most about this photo, besides the obvious moment, is the balance of artificial and available light. Such things can be as tricky as trying to avoid a face covered in cake. And, unfortunately, I've left an assignment more than once with a feeling of cake on my face. (Sigh.)
