First place had great expressions all the way down the line and the layering and darkness of the exposure also added mood to the frame. Would be interested to see about a crop coming in from the right side. There were a handful of crying and celebrating photos, but the blood and hand to the face in the second place photo made us want to know more, and the composition and moment of the third made it rise above other similar photos.
