General news category had a few good images, but it fell off from there. Perhaps the weakest category. First place was a good visual from the Pope visit. Second place told the story well, a crowd adoring the Pope. Third was a clean visual from a 911 event. HM was a good image from a concert one of the judges rallied for.
