The first place photo was originally passed by because of the wide-angle distortion. After giving it more thought, we thought the fun moment between the father and his sons was nice. The second place photo of the woman and child playing in nice light would have been our number one pick, but we thought it lacked necessary caption information. It was very basic and didn't include names. That being said, it was well executed and the photographer made great use of nice light. The third photo was fun and we enjoyed how the water filled the whole frame.
