2012-2013 PJD Quarterly Competition Round One

(Click photos to enlarge)

The themed competition for Round 1, 2013 is "Feature" (Open or Sports)

Open Feature
Usually a "found" situation that has strong human interest. These pictures generally show a fresh view of the commonplace, the lighter side of life or a bit of humor. Events and subjects (other than News, Sports or Sports Feature) are depicted in one photo. A nice portrait that is not sports-related would fit in this category. A silhouette of a child walking a dog through a park or on a beach during a sunset situation would be both horribly cliche and OK for this category.

Sports Feature
A sports-related picture with strong human interest. For example, jubilation or dejection after a victory or defeat on the field of play or on the sidelines. Also included in this category are any fan-related pictures or sports-related portraits, or the much-loved athlete kissing a trophy image.
