We all agreed immediately that the Wax Auction series was creepy, and that helped select it for 1st, but we also liked the quirky compositions of each photo from the group. 2nd place Conference projector dude was one of those pictures that we all try and get when we draw the short straw and get assigned the classroom or conference picture and try to get something interesting when the subject walks in front of a power point presentation. Well, this is what we're trying to get. We loved it. The 3rd place Russian series wasn't very dynamic, but we liked it's technical excellence.
