First place was a graphic, unique perspective. Great moment. We get the sense that that photog was the only with anything like that shot. Took planning to make that happen. Photog went beyond the normal assignment to find an interesting angle. Second place was a nice comedic moment. Interesting and different composition. Third place has beautiful light and makes us wonder more about the subject in the photo.
