Grand Jury Winner

"This image really embodies what a smile through someone's eyes looks like.  He is subtle in his expressions but his eyes tell a story that makes you want to sit down and have a coffee with him to discover.  Plus he is the King of Portland, which is a pretty impressive title" - Brett Jarnagin

Runner Up

"This photo captures the "smize" so well that the photographer didn't even need to show this child's mouth.  Bonus points for nailing tack sharp focus at such a narrow depth of field and bringing out every sparkling detail of the eyes!" - Brett Jarnagin

Runner Up

"This man's eyes simply say, "I've got soul!"  He just looks like a musician, right?  I just Googled him... he is.  Great job to the photographer who captured the essence of soul!" - Brett Jarnagin
