First place showed a pivotal moment in the standoff. It showed the actual spot news. The little details made this photo so great. Second place showed an effort to get to the scene quickly. We often see photos of cars in buildings but never with the actual driver. Third place took a serious situation and made it interesting. We enjoyed the color and shadows.
