Judges Comments

The hand on the ball was the definitive moment for the first place finisher. Bonus: We could see the players' eyes. All this despite the awful stadium lighting. Second place: Water is awesome in football. The photographer captured it just right. But the image needed a tighter crop for more power. Third place: That anguish when you know you've lost the ball was evident in this player's face. Tight composition keeps attention where it's needed.
