FEATURE

Comments We thought the first place winner captured the event - what was going on as well as the crowd - in a creative and unexpected way.  Nice.  Second and third place captured humorous moments and the giant bear photo was composed well.  Third might have worked composition or lenses to minimize dead space.

NEWS

Comments: :  First place - a quiet scene that at first appears ordinary but becomes so poignant because of the girl’s body language and stare.  Second - storytelling photo of the scene in which the smoke and haze creates a mood.  Third - captures an emotional moment but context could improve storytelling.

Fort McMurray evacuee Saira Younis, who is due May 11 with her third child, arrived at the evacuee reception area at SAIT late Thursday night with the rest of her family.




SPORTS

Comments: First - gritty, with great expressions.  Second - great peak moment in a layered image.  Well composed and we liked how you could see the expressions of the other players. Third - well executed, good expressions.

SPOT NEWS

Comments: Some good options here.  First - a clear winner, being there to capture the large fireball.  Second - captured good expression and composed well. Third - smoke nicely frames the firefighters in a photo that is graphically appealing.  HM - a great moment captured despite focusing choice. One judge felt this image would’ve placed in the news category.

PORTRAIT

 Comments: Many were well executed and good for daily work.  First - a clear winner.  Photographer creatively used available light, environment and a prop to provide a visually cool photo that also had context. Second - simple and elegant, nice light and expression.  Third - good use of light, shows anticipation of speed without actually being in action.

MULTI-PHOTO


Comments: :  First and second were exceptional but we struggled to find a third.  First - the whole package, such breadth.  Out of this tragedy, beautiful scene setters, multiple solid storytelling moments, human moments, strong graphic composition and technically solid.  Second - practically the same strengths as first place, but add a fine creative way of seeing.  Third - variety of situations helped but it didn’t have a standout image.

Motorists travel south on Highway 63 as the setting sun illuminates a huge plume of smoke from wildfires burning in the distance over Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, on Wednesday, May 4, 2016. A fire fueled by shifting winds that forced more than 80,000 people to flee their homes and threatened the business district of oil-sands hub Fort McMurray, Canada, raged out of control Wednesday after consuming 80 square kilometers (30 square miles) of land and damaging 1,600 buildings.

Tim Brys (left) and Niels Van Zandweghe of Belgium celebrate as they finish first in the Men's lightweight double sculls at the final Olympic qualification regatta in Lucerne Switzerland on May 24th, 2016.  Despite winning the race due to an FISA qualification rule it is unclear whether or not Brys and Van Zandweghe will be awarded the spot for Rio or if it will be given to Denmark. Brys said " We won the race. But we crossed the finish line with really mixed feelings."


John Smith of the South African lightweight mens double sculls does up his oarlock while his partner James Thompson holds onto the dock during a training session in Lucerne, Switzerland on Tuesday May 24, 2016. The South Africans would finish in third place behind France and Norway in the final of the second Rowing World Cup of the season. Smith's veins are more prominent due to a lowering of his subcutaneous fat as well as a protein called vascular endothelial growth factor that triggers new vein growth to accommodate for the increased demand of oxygen by Smith's larger muscles.


Women's pairs (left to right) Karien Robbers and Aletta Jorritsma of the Netherlands, Carmela Pappalardo and Ludovica Serafini of Italy, Kerstin Hartman and Kathrin Marchand of Germany, Helen Glover and Heather Stanning of Great Britain and Hedvig Rasmussen and Anne Andersen of Denmark leave the starting gates in the first heat of the Women's pair at the Lucerne World Cup on May 27th, 2016. Glover and Stanning won the heat which was no surprise as they are the current world record holders in the event.


Julien Bahain and Rob Gibson of Canada embrace on the dock after placing second behind Russia at the last chance Olympic qualification regatta in Lucerne Switzerland on May 24th, 2016. Only the top two crews from the six boat final qualified for Rio.


Members of the Canadian Women's Eight Lisa Roman, Cristy Nurse, Natalie Mastracci, Susanne Grainger, Christine Roper, Ashley Brzozowicz, Lauren Wilkinson, Antje Vonseydlitz-Kurzbach and coxswain Lesley Thompson-Willie leave the dock in Lucerne, Switzerland prior to the second rowing world cup of the season on May 26th, 2016.


Patricia Obee lets out a yawn as partner Lindsay Jennerich checks the course while leaving the dock prior to the semi-final in the women's lightweight double sculls at the second world cup of the season in Lucerne, Switzerland on May 27th, 2016.
Yawning may provide a competitive advantage, as it stimulates a structure in the brain that affects consciousness and attentional focus. Yawning also regulates the temperature and metabolism of the brain and cooling down the frontal lobes allows for greater concentration. Obee and Jennerich would go on to win their semi-final as well as the final the following day placing them amongst the favourites to win at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.


Cuban single sculler Angel Fournier Rodriguez has a drink prior to his heat at the second Rowing World Cup race of the season in Lucerne, Switzerland on May 27th, 2016. Rodriguez would win his heat and move onto the final where he would finish third behind Mahe Drysdale of New Zealand and Ondřej Synek of the Czech Republic.


Maximilian Fraenkel of Germany takes a drink of micro-nutrients directly after finishing his first heat of the second World Cup race of the season in Lucerne, Switzerland on May 27th, 2016.  Fraenkel said "the nutrients are sour on my tongue but are meant to assist me with repair of my muscle tissue between races."

Pascal Lussier, Will Dean, Rob Gibson and Julien Bahain of Canada leave the starting gates in the mens quad in their first heat of the second rowing world cup of the season in Lucerne, Switzerland on May 27th, 2016. The crew would later withdraw from the regatta due to illness.

would win the race over second place Germany and third USA in a time of 5:28.560 while Great Britain finish in sixth position.
