Judge - Karl Leck
Karl Leck loves photographing anything, anywhere, and anytime. He has photographed on every continent. His images from six summer Olympic Games have been used by Sports Illustrated, US News & World Report and the US Olympic Committee as well as over 20 specialty magazines. Honors include the Photographic Society of America Photojournalist of the Year in 1992 and 2006, Senior Fellow of the Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography and Fellow of the Delaware Photographic Society (DPS). He has taught photography at DPS, University of Delaware Lifelong Learning Institute, Cecil College, Delaware Nature Society and other venues. In the last 55 years he has used film and digital still cameras from 35mm to 8x10 as well as rotating panoramic film cameras and ultra high speed flash.
An excellent image for Karl is one that is technically well done: subject appropriately focused, exposure revealing highlight and shadow detail, composition leading the viewer's eye to the subject, and no visible image processing artifacts. To be a 'winner' the image should tell a story or reveal something interesting about the subject. Originality in subject matter or in the manner an image is captured adds value. Since photography is an art, the artist should use the available tools to interpret and clarify their vision of the subject.
