The judges agree that there needed to be tighter edits on the entries with multiple images. Lots of images were very strong, but as a group it weighed them down. The first place story was strong; filled with nice details and good ordering of images. Second place was awarded due to the powerful moment in the image; and the great light. Third place had great composition; it was a creative way to show a scene that could have been easily overlooked.
