"The Captured Moments Photo Show is filled with wonderful photography pieces displaying a wide range of subjects and techniques. This show was full of thought provoking pieces representing unusual points of view, which provoked me to think and reflect on the photographers' perspective.
Although a difficult task because of the impressive quality of work, I am thankful for the opportunity to judge the Captured Moments Show." - Jeanne
