1st: The photographer obviously worked hard to cover this tragedy from multiple angles and got to the scene quickly. 2nd: Good image that captures the intensity of a tense scene. 3rd: This entry told the story in the first two images and would have been stronger without the last two. 4th: This image would be more dramatic with a much tighter crop.
