Family Honorable Mention

Second place winner goes to John Marks and family with his vintage photo of five brothers, including himself (upper left) taken with a Nikon F SLR. Marks set up the composition and camera exposure, and someone else (whose identity has been forgotten over the 44 intervening years!) pressed the button. Sun photographer Algerina Perna says,“Converting the photo to a sepia tone gives it a throwback feeling appropriate for its age: 1974. Making the photo all one shade lessens the distraction of the background and ties all the elements together. The photo makes a nice keepsake for the family records.”
