Judges Comments

  • This a rather unique image in the genre of live band players in silhouette because, beside the fact that itʼs a really nice photo executed well by the photographer, itʼs the long stretch of band members with the equally long, linear background that “sold me” on this image. And if youʼve ever traveled south of the U.S. border through Mexico and particularly Central America, youʼd recognize the fencing style so popular around various public venues that host music, speeches, markets and such. So, the fencing, art into a short painted concrete wall, adds to the image as a setting descriptor.
