1st - Not to knock the winners in this category, but this was a rough month to judge spot news. There just wasn’t a lot to choose from. However, this first place image stood out because of its nice composition and spacing of elements in the frame; its use of available light and color; and the pictorial feel of the picture. 2nd - This is a decent picture of the photographer perhaps arriving a bit late to the scene. The photographer used the compositional elements and made a storytelling image. 3rd - We liked the situation the photographer got in to, but felt a moment of some sort would have helped this picture.
