    Judge Comment: Intentional or not, the emptiness where one would expect to see a bustle of activity conveys the isolation and loneliness of the situation, adding to the clearly captured emotions visible on the subject's face.

    Entry Title: Parrot friend
    Entry Credit: Jeff Taylor
    Judge Comment: Photo shows a unique bond between man and his parrot, as well as the trust between the two. While many people would find it an unusual situation, the photo conveys the sense of normality for the two.

    Entry Title: Power of Friendship

    Judge Comment: A real slice of life photo that takes the reader behind the scenes. One feels as though they are able to share a private, unguarded moment.
