  1. It is always challenging to get viewers attention when it comes to photographs of a large group of people. Mark has successfully managed to hold my attention with his winning photograph. I like that he has filled the frame, taking viewer from left of the frame all the way to the right. And as you start looking at the individuals, it is their expressions that makes this photograph engaging. The picture beautifully captures the determination and the will to not give up!
