    Judge Comment: Sometimes you don?t second guess or overanalyze an immediate reaction to a photo. This shot of the pelican immediately popped up as an excellent photo the second the file was clicked. The photo brought one right into the moment.

    Entry Title: Christmas in the ICU
    Entry Credit: Francine Orr
    Judge Comment: Another good photo of the loneliness and how the pandemic kept many loved ones apart, including those directly affected by the virus. We heard or read about people who would FaceTime with friends and relatives from the hospital. Here, we actually see it.
