The first place image is graphic and it's an excellent look at the behind the scenes moments that go on when preparing for a sporting event. The second image was a well seen moment, but it looks like it was over-toned. The toning took away from the cute moment as we continued to look it. The third place winner was a series of images that had an excellent concept. We enjoyed the idea the photographer was trying to execute, but we felt the images didn't go above and beyond what was capable. The series should have been edited into a tighter submission.
