Judges Comments:
The composition, layers and subtle moment really made this a nice find.

F-Feature 2nd Place 40 Points
Photographer: Charlie Nye

Judges Comments:
We felt the picture was seen very well but it just needed another moment or something to elevate it to the next level.

Judges Comments:
We like the moment here and the little bit of Charlotte’s smile that was included.

F-Feature HM Place 10 Points

Judges Comments:
This was a nice found moment where a bland picture could have been made. We commend the photographer for looking a little deeper at an assignment about a lunch menu.

Judges Comments:
We felt this was the best moment out of the lot. The added layer of information and context you get from the scene was nice as well.

Judges Comments:
This category in general was pretty slim. This photo had some nice seeing and pretty light that helped it out.

Judges Comments:
We liked the moment and body language Becca was displaying in this photo. Sort of what you would expect from a vigil but still nice.

Judges Comments:
We felt this piece was the strongest story. The photographer clearly spent time with the subject and made interesting, well composed frames.

Judges Comments:
This collection of photos included some really interesting seeing. The photographer obviously spent time with the subject but we felt this could have used a tighter edit and a larger variety of moments.

Judges Comments:
We thought this was again a nice collection of images that could have been taken a bit farther. We would have liked to see more of a story develop around Mr. Reed. It would have been nice to see a bit more of his life beyond the water skiing. The photo at the gym and going down the ramp were a nice start to that.

Judges Comments:
As far as celebration shots go this one is exemplary. Right place, right time, right choice of when to press the shutter.

Judges Comments:
Fantastic moment, but the technical aspect kept it out of first.

Unusual moment with a great face. It caught our eye and we kept coming back to the frame while judging.
