1st place had a nice, tight edit filled with moving and picturesque images. 2nd was a really well done package of tightly edited images giving a look into Sybrant's 50 years of tire service. Well done by photographer to get variety from a seemingly difficult assignment that could have easily been shrugged off with just one portrait. 3rd could have been edited tighter by dropping one or two images that seemed repetitive. Unfortunately, there is only one verticle, but that's the weakest image and we would start by cutting that one. Interesting content and nice job of getting a variety of images and quieter moments.
