Sports action was an interesting category. Our first place image, collison catch, won for it's unique situation and composition of the moment. Second place went to heads up for similar reasons. It has a clean background and nice moment while also being a good action capture. Third place was chosen for being a well composed action photo that caught our eye. Honorable mentions went to diving, tag and alie jump for being a few other of our favorites though not as strong as the top three winners.
