This category was somewhat weak so the winners quickly rose to the top. First place was well-conceptualized, nicely executed and eye-catching (pun intended). Second place was well-lit but didn't need to be shot on a tilt. Third was also a good use of light but the photographer could have found a way to conceal elements in the background.
