Juror's Choice: Splash
After much consideration over several days, I decided that "Splash" by Lisa Miller is my choice for the best in show for the motion photography exhibit. It captured that peak action in way that draws me in and then forces me to consider every element in the photograph. The toning was a bit on the heavy-handed side meaning that the burned areas are a little more burned and the dodged areas are a little more dodged than I like, but the motion aspect of the image more than made up for that. The composition and the color palate were pleasing. Overall, it made me "feel" summer. Everything came together nicely.
Juror's Mention: Moving Bubble
Just a beautiful photograph that, due to the shape of the bubble, comes to life.
Juror's Mention: Snow Fairies III
Nice composition and a peak moment during a stage production.
Juror's Mention: Fireworks Over Torii Gate
Well timed and exposed fireworks photo with an interesting foreground element.
Note from the judge:
I feel that I need to explain why all the photographs that I chose feature "stopped" action. While many of the blur motion photographs were interesting, none of them jumped out at me in a way that made me want to place them. Careful consideration was given to the penguin photo in particular, but it was missing that intangible element that makes it something special. They were all so close to being something that drew me in, but never quite made the impression that I felt they needed to.
