The motina and capture of a split second is so powerful! Especially in low light! I can hear the smack into the mitt.

Dynamic motion. Brilliant colors against the black and white backdrop let’s me hear the thud of the hooves and yelling of the players. The lonely ball in the bottom right is wonderful.

1st Place

Barbara Archer-Baldwin

“As America As…”

A quiet still life that has beautiful light and composition and makes you ask the question…why is there a baseball in the bowl with the apples? To keep from rolling away? It’s loose but tells a full story.

I was immediately drawn to this nostalgic piece. Two young girls, stuffed animals in hand, framed in ethereal cloud. Wonderful light and shadows and an ease of pace. Sweet!
