It would be nice to see more – and perhaps, stronger – single entries.In general, these “news picture stories” had too many images and weakened each situation. Less is more – and, you’re only as good as your weakest image. They may be clichés but they are worth following. 1st – Good, broad coverage of a news event with a wide variety of images but would have benefited greatly with a tighter edit. 2nd – Great emotion, good variety but still needed a little tighter edit. 3rd – The only single image that jumped off the screen. Good impact. Cutline needs to be clearer.
