Judge's Comments: Nocturnes are notoriously difficult subject matter to pull off and Bob did a great job here. Wonderful control of values and attention to the various light sources: the top lighting from the warm streetlight versus the cool light coming from the upstairs window versus the warm light on the right side coming through the trees. Bob took an commonplace scene that would be easy to pass by and turned it into a beautiful piece of artwork. You can feel the mosquitoes coming out on a hot summer night. - Kathleen Dunphy
