Judges Comments

  • What strikes me the most about this image is the photographer has creative vision. News photographers have called it “The Eye” for decades. It is also said, usually in the same breath, that The Eye canʼt be taught. You have it or you donʼt. The twirl of a dress, the spring of a shoe make this image a moment only The Eye could see.
