First Place is an image that make you feel good. A classic feature picture with joy and warmth, well framed. Second place is not "just one more graduation" photo, it has chaos and happiness while tellng a story. Third is a humorous juxtapostion of little dogs and big biker. We selected the alternate becuase it is a fun wild art photo that we all have to shoot, but the photographer gave it energy.
