1st: Great and creative way to show both sides of the story. Stood out from all the other protest photos that just had people yelling with signs. Good job stepping back and not just shooting the protesters. 2nd: Feel like this should be more of a long-term project. Nicely shot, but needs to be edited down to about three images, not seven. 3rd: Judges kept coming back to the flag and the girl. We know that kids and flags can get kind of cliche but we liked the feel of this image. Nice job localizing a national story.
