FEATURE


Comments:First place clear winner, would have liked tighter crop on right but great depth, multi-dimensional image, even with slightly looser crop was clear winner. Second place, great composition and timing with the deer in the light. Third place classic event we’ve all had to shoot. Clean, well composed right lens.

Lyndsey Saunders rides a stand up paddle board as plumps of Canadian Geese fly overhead in Parksville, B.C. on August 8th, 2017. Smoke from wildfires in British Columbia’s interior drifted over Vancouver Island limiting visibility and pushing the air quality to a high risk level.

A family of deer gather on the shores near Oak Bay Marina during a smokey sunrise in Victoria, B.C., Thursday, August 3, 2017. The second day of smoke has blanketed the capital city as 138 active wildfires continue to burn across the province.

NEWS

Comments:First place once again a unanimous choice. Great use of a wide angle, great light, perfect for the subject matter. Just hit on every element. Second place great juxtaposition and color (monotone background, colorful little girl), no camera awareness which is tough with children.  Third place something we all shoot more and more, very quick read, knew what it was without even a caption.

SPORTS

Comments: First place an incredible combination of moment, action, framing, luck, everything. The balls all almost the same height off the ground, so much multi-dimensionality in the background with different people framed, the ball at the top filling what would be empty space.  Just super. Second place a perfect football moment.  Both guys in the air, ball just off the hands, clean, tight, perfect. Third place great emotion, would have loved the elements a bit closer together (we all thought maybe a frame or later might have made the difference!)

PORTRAIT

Comments: First place, just great framing with the hands, great light, goes well with the story.  Second place, great solution for obscured identity. Everyone goes to the silhouette, this was thinking outside the box. Third place, nice light.  Good solution for what appears to be a non-prop environment. Good capture of personality.

3. Michelle Berg/The Star Phoenix

Elsa Gebremichael is photographed at The Hollows in Saskatoon on August 16, 2017. She has been making music in Saskatoon for 20 years, but her skill set includes so much more than writing and performing songs. As an independent artist, she’s also worn hats like tour manager, music video creator, stylist, producer and much more.



SPOT NEWS


Comments: First place again a unanimous choice.  Great storytelling image while very simple, right to the point. Second place, great composition and light, perfect silhouette of the destroyed building adding to the image. Third place, unusual moment, depth a little tough on the read but still a great moment, perfect spot to the make the picture.

MULTI-PHOTO

Comments: First place great story, think it could have been actually edited down a little but many fantastic images. Thought frame 2 of the diamond shaped mirror reflection could have been a single winner, just great. Overall superb. So many great techniques throughout, framing, depth, reflections, details.  Second place again a great collection of news photos.  Maybe one or two might have been edited out for redundancy. A great variety of images from one event with different perspectives, some close, some back, well balanced. All too often photographers can get stuck with a multi-image package all looking like it was shot with the same lens, this is a great example of how to do it right! Third place was the best executed package of eclipse coverage. Edited well, shot well, the crowd, the details, the projected eclipse on the ground with the shadow reaching to it was great.
