Our top pick for the feature photo category was an engaging image of a man pulling his nieces on a sled, second was a classic shot of a girl speaking with Santa and third was a laughing kid who had wiped out while sledding. Our alternate image was of a photo of what appear to be Amish kids walking with old sleds into the snow. Many of the other entries lacked the human or artistic elements we normally associate with a feature photograph.
