FEATURE

Comments: first place was a favorite despite the people looking into the camera. it worked in this instance. the photo is a lot of fun. second place is a solid example of how to shoot a photo of someone changing a lightbulb. good color and composition. third is a good weather feature. we’d be happy to have that on a snow day.

NEWS

Comments: the news category was a little thin. there were a lot of sign and Justin Trudeau photos. first place stuck out from the group compositionally and in terms of subject matter. second was the most interesting take on justin trudeau, though it would have been nice to see a little more of a moment on the phone. the phone photographer might not have been a pro, so the pro photog can’t be faulted too much. third was the best march/sign photo. good layering and faces.

Protests are being held across Canada today in support of the Women's March on Washington. Organizers say 30 events in all have been organized across Canada, including Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.


SPORTS

Comments:  first place has nice mood, color, texture and light. it was cropped a little tight and might have benefitted from a little more prominence of the snowcapped mountains. either way, it is a nice frame. the light, color and interaction helped number two elevate beyond other similar jubilation photos in the mix. third is a “guy in the sky” photo, but it has nice space, color and separation of skier from other elements. it would have benefitted from a less panoramic crop.

PORTRAIT

Comments: first place has good light, texture and subject. it’s a simple execution done well. the color, moment and soft light helped second place stand out. third is a sweet moment. there were a number of other strong submissions in the group.

The couple, who were married in 1961, wanted to die together after receiving approval from two doctors for medical assistance in dying but legal advice from the lawyers' group that represents Canadian physicians has forced the doctor who will help them die to schedule the procedures four days apart. Kay died on January 11 and four days later Ernie, who had spinal stenosis leaving him with no feeling in his calves and feet and a failing heart and kidneys, died with the help of the same physician.



SPOT NEWS

Comments: This category had a number of fire spray or silhouette photos; police or firemen inspecting wrecked vehicles. that helped first place elevate to the top. it’s a storytelling images that was just different enough to stand out from the group. second place was the best of the cars being tended to photos because of the smoke, water and action. third was a cool frame that stepped away from standard firefighting photos for a different perspective.

He says no deaths have been reported, but two firefighters were taken to hospital for smoke inhalation and a resident rescued from the top floor was taken to hospital for assessment. *(carried over from December)



MULTI-PHOTO


Comments: the winner had the best selection of photos. the portrait of the skier in the helmet, the tight shot of the athlete stretching, some nice action and good details. with that said, it was a 14-picture entry. we gave it a 9-picture edit that we felt better reflected the best of the take. if there had been more entries in the category overall, the fatter edit might have dropped this a place or two. second place had the best variety of the three or four entries from women’s marches. again, a tighter edit might have helped this entry to achieve its full potential. third had some tones and photos we liked, but would be stronger with a little more variety.
