This was definitely the most entered category as well as the most difficult to judge due to the high number of fun and well executed images. Ultimately, we went with our first place choice due to the creativity of a simple moment, something a little different than the rest. Second place was a heart warmer and a nice perspective and angle choice. Third place was my personal pick for first place originally, but due to the wide crop and darkness of the image, it just wasn't quite there.
