Good composition and framing. It was one of the only photographs in the category that made us look deeper into the image to see what was going on.

This made us laugh out loud as soon as it was on the screen. An image we haven’t seen from a county fair before.

Love the story and feel of this image. Seems a little heavy handed on the post production.

Judges Comments:
Powerful image in a tough situation. We’re guessing that the kids faces couldn’t be shown, and the photographer made a wonderful image from a difficult spot.

Some nice single images from the event. Difficult situation for the photographer because the story wasn’t as detailed as the others that placed higher.

Table tennis is not an easy event to photograph, and this photographer made a unique image by combining peak action, body language and a scene setting look.
