February Photo of the Months Contests winners announced
During the annual blood drive Feb. 14, junior Maggie McKinney flinches as the nurse begins to draw blood. McKinney passed out several times after her donation. “I chose to give blood because I felt like I should give back to those in need, especially since millions of people in the country rely on blood transfusions to save their lives,” McKinney said.
We had some great submissions this month! Below are the results for February.
FEBRUARY PHOTO OF THE MONTH RESULTS
1st Place: Dillan Elmquist, Notre Dame de Sion
Judges’ Comments: What a wonderful facial expression. The exposure is great, and the caption fully explains the image and adds voice to the subject. Don’t forget rules of third, though, when framing.
2nd Place: Ana Manzano, Rock Bridge High School
Judges’ Comments: The exposure is a little dark, but the timing is perfect. The photographer did a great job of capturing the ball, hoop and facial expressions. A quote would help add more character to the quote.
3rd Place: Ava Stoltz, Notre Dame de Sion
Judges’ Comments: Great job stopping the action. While the cropping of the opposing player is somewhat off, the photographer did a nice job of focusing on the subject’s expression and movements. The caption is also very well written.
