2016 Q3 Photography Contest Judges


  • I tried to find images that were beyond people eating or drinking, and I thought this photo was more about the relationships. Well shot and interesting photo to look at. I love all the different expressions.
  • Love the hands, joy and emotions. Compelling.
  • All the reaching hands let us know that this feast is one to be desired. Tightly framed, the eye is kept involved in the center of the happy celebration.
