FEATURE

Comments: ERB:
I love the picture of the professional statue making his way downtown, faces past and he's homebound. Maybe he is, I don't know. Caption could use a lot more information. But the picture is a nice slice of life.
LOVE the picture of the Sheriff's officer walking across the beautiful geometric step thing. Simple and composed, frame well filled.
Horsies, nice, clean frame.

BS:
First place was one of the best moments in the whole contest.  I like the information behind the image, which I think is cool on top of the moment.
Second place, I appreciate your patients.

HJ:
LRH nailed it with the decisive moment of a moment (haha) in the first place image.
I like a lot of these in a just plain visual sense.  I feel like some would do well in a “Pictorial” category.

Riders and their horses pass through a canola field as they take an afternoon trail ride near Cremona, Alta., Tuesday, July 19, 2016. Canola is a contraction of Canada and ola, meaning oil. To earn the name canola, products must meet an internationally regulated standard. The world's healthiest vegetable oil is extracted from the seeds of the canola plant.

NEWS

Comments: Unanimous immediate agreement on first place image.

ERB:
Weakest category of the bunch. First frame is interesting. Second is helped by knowing the background. Third is a moment.

BS:
First place locked in immediately for me.  The newsworthiness, the colors and layers work wonderfully.  And I like the second place as well, but would really suggest a crop that shows the back half of the hearse and the men.  I don't know what the woman adds and it just looks like they are following a woman past a hearse.

HJ:
The mood of the first place image is what got me.  I agree that it is a weak category.

Police search a rural area in the disappearance of a five-year-old Calgary girl, Taliyah Marsman, near Chestermere, Alta., Thursday, July 14, 2016.

Mourners walk behind a hearse carrying the body of Lt. Col. Pritam Singh Jauhal to a crematorium, after his funeral at the Valley View Funeral Home in Surrey, B.C., on Sunday July 3, 2016. Mr. Jauhal, a Second World War veteran who later fought for the right of Sikh men to wear a turban in the Royal Canadian Legion’s halls died recently at about 95-years old (the exact day of his birth, in rural Punjab, was not recorded at the time). He spent 38 years in the Indian Army and Central Reserve Police Force, retiring with the rank of lieutenant-colonel before immigrating to Canada to be with his children in 1980.

John Nuttall, back, and Amanda Korody embrace each other at B.C. Supreme Court after they were released from custody after a judge ruled the couple were entrapped by the RCMP in a police-manufactured crime, in Vancouver, B.C., on Friday July 29, 2016. Justice Catherine Bruce said police instigated and skillfully engineered the very terrorist acts committed by John Nuttall and Amanda Korody, who believed they were planting pressure-cooker bombs that would blow up at the legislature on Canada Day in 2013.

SPORTS

Comments: ERB:
Muddy dramatic pain. Ouch. That's the shot right there.

BS:
If this clip contest had a Best of Show, I'd pick the first place image, hands down.  The photo is immaculately timed, is beautiful, funny and terrifying all at the same time.  I shared it with other photogs in my office. Second has a great moment.

HJ:
I love the tension in the third place photo.

SPOT NEWS

Comments: BS:
I unintentionally turned spot news into a beauty pageant.  I went with the first two images due to their atheistics.  The third is a great image.  I love that the photographer was there right away and I enjoy seeing first responders caring for people in need.

HJ:
I thought this category was kind of weak.  SAM, way to get there at peak action!



1. Lyle Aspinall/Postmedia

Police walk through a canola field east of Calgary, Alta., on Thursday, July 14, 2016. HAWC, the Calgary Police Service helicopter, was flying over a very wide area in the Chestermere, Conrich and Delacour areas east of Calgary, with police vehicles following along, as the search for five-year-old Taliyah Marsman continued.

PORTRAIT

 Comments: ERB:
First image is the most visually appealing.

BS:
First and second place, thank you for showing me something that is unique. First place, cool photo, but no name?!? tsk tsk tsk.  Second, way to plan ahead for something cool.  Third, nice light and caption info. I would like to know if he was just standing there or if it was posed.

HJ:
I was pulling for you, PRTJulKRL1.  Living and working in Hawaii, I know what it is like to stop your day and get in the water for a photo.  The extra effort and planning was worth the first place for me.  I like your image too, PRTJulJZM4.  I just wish I knew what her story was about.  PRTJulyLRH3, classic.

MULTI-PHOTO


Comments:

ERB:
Indifferent about the others. Too many images. But I do have a comment about Entry 3.

**Entry 3: The captions are seriously lacking in care to the people being photographed. A more informative and careful caption could read: "Batoul Abboud, 17, right, laughs as she tries her first mini donut while attending the annual Stampede at so-and-so-city, in Canada, Sat. July 14, 2016. Abbdoul, a recent refugee from Town, Syria, moved here with her family for [the following reasons]. "[quote about her feelings/expierience/etc]"."

The captions are lazy and show a disregard towards the subjects as merely "Syrian refugees". What's the purpose behind noting that they're refugees if the coverage is merely of a family enjoying the stampede? "Syrian refugee" isn't a title.

Was there something special about this stampede? Was it designed to specifically welcome refugees to the community?

BS:
Dear photo friends, For the love of Leica EDIT THESE DOWN!  Oh man, you want to leave the viewer wanting more… not wanting less.  Please feel free to email me/dropbox me stories and I will happily help you narrow things down.  (bscroggins@standard.net) There was a lot of redundancy in the multi picture package.
  I have the willpower of a saint to not make any puns on the first place winner.  Way to get a variety of images, while being as PG as you can be.  You found a unique story and you get extra bonus points for humor.
Third place nice visual variety, but your edit is far too large. You could do a lot more with less. 

HJ:
I agree with ERB about Entry 3’s captions.  I don’t like writing just as much as the next photog, but more care into the assignment was definitely needed.

Final judges comments:

BS:
Over all a lot of cool work.  Photogs always get more critique than praise in contests… sorry about that.  Seriously though, there really is some great work in here.  I love seeing new things and having the chance to see through your eye. 
I can't wait to see what you do next. Please feel free to send me edits if you are interested. 
Thank you for the submitting, documenting your communities and inspiring me to be a better photographer.

HJ:
Good work, everyone!
