Fall 2017

GENERAL CATEGORY

 

BEST IN SHOW – ” Love Note” – Deborah Cohen

 

Judges Comments: “The textures on the piano keys and the flower are excellent.  Very powerful … Gorgeous print.”

 

FIRST PLACE – “Away in the Manger” by Steve Labkoff

 

Judges Comments:  “I LOVE this print – the printing is beautiful – very vibrant.  the stars lead the viewer right to the Manger.  It would look better if it was printed as a glossy print.

 

SECOND PLACE – “Hey! …I’m Talking to You!” – Dale Leifeste

Judges Comments:  The interaction between these two birds is Great!  The thin pinstripe around the image enhances its presentation. The whites are “blown out”, you’re loosing details in the birds’ feathers.

 

THIRD PLACE – “Table for One” – Les Muldorf

Judges Comments: This is an excellent image with a great corresponding title.  My eyes go straight up the alleyway, and up the stairs to the table.  The pink wall in the background should be darker to that the table stands out in contrast.

 

Judges for this competition:  Frank Bulfamonte and Frank Dispensa

Print Committee: Clark Thompson, Janet Snyder and Deborah Cohen
