DeBiase shared this description of her technique for capturing the famine memorial in Dublin, Ireland:

Seeing this memorial commemorating all those people who left Ireland for America during the Potato Famine, I was thunderstruck by it. Its stark beauty took my breath away. I got in close and captured as much of the memorial as I could with my camera. When I got home and looked at this image, I thought that leaving the figures in their true colors and having the background in black & white best evoked the deep feelings I experienced when I saw it in person

She will now be taking home one of the following prize options:
