We gave first place to the Pacific Northwest photo essay for its beautiful light, composition and photo editing. More of an essay than photo story which probably made it fun and exciting for the photographer to shoot. A nice mix of moments, details and scene setters, set this one apart from the rest. The football story came together well, within the game mostly. Some nice moments kept the story together and moving. The story of Mr. Gonzalez attending his naturalization ceremony was well shot and executed.
