FEATURE

Comments: A lot of poorly lit or composed images entered. But also some real gems in the bunch.  Some very nice images!  It was tough to narrow down the winners but they have more than just good content.  First is very well done, the technique at 1/10th shutter and telephoto, filled the frame with colour and paddle action, nicely done.  Second place, is a winner because of the low angle, with foreground and background interaction.  The key subject is very small but the three horses placement works.  Third, great seeing, a more creative approach.  Great clouds and again, key subject is clear despite being very small in the frame.

Edmonton Fire Department Technical Rescue members demonstrate a rescue on the side of the clock tower at City Hall during First Responders Day in Churchill Square, in Edmonton Alta. on Thursday June 9, 2016. Organizers say the event was an opportunity for the public to meet first responder members outside of an emergency situation.


NEWS

Comments: The winners are good story telling “news” photos.  First is unique subject, well composed showing the many rows of fridges.  Second good mood, and moment from a mundane event.  Third, again, mood, feeling, emotion, all good elements that worked well here.

David Stephan was sentenced to four months in jail and his wife Collet received three months hpouse arrest in the death of their 19-month-old son.



SPORTS

Comments: Very few peak action shots, a lot of “missed” moments.  First place was best of the action.  Second female football player is clear in story telling content. Third, busy indoors but works.

SPOT NEWS

Comments: We debated the various Ft. Mac fire aftermath shots and like the wide shot for first, that showed the “most” while still being well designed with impact.  Good emotion with the second place and good composition.  Third was mostly “wow” content, could have been cropped tighter. HM could have been placed higher with a bit of crop of the left side, avoiding red object and the central placement of subject.

Emergency services at the scene of a crash that saw and SUV roll and impale on a fence June 17th. Two people in that SUV were heavily entrapped and firefighters had to extricate them. Sadly, one died at the scene. RCMP report speed was a factor in the 3-vehicle crash.

PORTRAIT

 Comments: Some great portraits, and it was tough to narrow them down.  First is just nearly perfect, fantastic light, all three subjects great poses, wow.  Second is clean and simple.  Third has a great mood to it, despite it missing cutline information, it intrigued us enough to place.  HM, simple portrait but background/location worked well.

MULTI-PHOTO


Comments: First place entry had a lot of photos, but we felt only 3-4 were expendable.  A great variety of content, moments, good compositions and most importantly story telling from the Fort Mac fire aftermath.  Second and Third place were both cattle branding stories.  Second was a bit more in-depth with the story, although they both had some beautiful images.  Third was in Black and White and we felt was a bit over worked, just too unrealistic contrast and skies.  Both were very well done. HM to story on B-17 bomber.   Story was a bit limited and few shots were too similar.  Overall some good Multi-Pic entries, lots to look at!

Sorry I failed to provide a caption for the third place portrait.
Yellowknife, NT -  June 22, 2016 - Yellowknifer newspaper reporter John McFadden takes a smoke break before heading to court to face a charge of obstructing police in their duties during a police search of a van in the city's downtown last year. McFadden contends he was simply doing his job as a reporter.
