First Place: Easy first place, nothing else was close. Well planned and executed image and extremely clean. Second Place: Our eyes went right to the face of the grieving woman. And nice to see no one looking at the photog, would have cropped it a bit more though off the top. Third Place: A funny image during a predictable moment. The photog probably didn't even see this happen until editing.
