My name is Mark Sarver and I was honored to participate as a judge in the photography contest.

My background is as a photographer and a teacher of digital imaging, printing, and design, and as a digital technician hired by many photography professionals to enhance their images and realize their vision.

The theme this month was "the human form." I interpret "the human form" to mean the study of the human body using design, shape, and light. Many great portraits, editorial portraits, and action shots were submitted, but they didn't quite fit the theme.

Within the Final 50 were some images that would have been better with a simple crop. Others could have been enhanced by shooting in RAW and using better image processing.

The images I ranked highest were those using design, shape, and light to say something about the human form.

Thank you for this opportunity to participate as a judge.

Photography apps for your phone
