"In defense of marriage"

By Hanna Oberman

Judge's Comment:

In her second-place image, Hannah Oberman finds a way to isolate this couple's passionate kiss against what could have been a distracting background. Her manipulated toning gives this image a cinematic quality, and her title, "In Defense of Marriage," makes the viewer want to know more about the moment she has captured.
