JUDGES COMMENTS

This is a real refreshment in today's photography. Seeing simple, pure editing and a strong focus on the subject without heavy post-production. That’s why I was immediately drawn to Randy’s image. It’s such a raw and honest portrait. I love how everything is about the subject that is set perfectly into the focus with a neutral background and tight composition. Black and white conversion highlights the realness of the image and makes it even more powerful. It’s a really strong image
To be honest, I fell in love with the entire series that Randy Bacon submitted to our monthly contest! It evokes the state of mind and emotions that I would describe as "All that is". In other words, I can feel LOVE radiating from this series. I guess what I feel while watching these photographs are his honest love towards humanity and ALL people. Very honest series and strong portraiture skills by all means. Needless to say ho much I love BW conversion, light, and editing. Perfection!
