Great moment captured in the first-place image. Photographer did a nice job of getting up close to the conflict but still leaving enough room to show the different faces of the scene. Second place was a well-composed image. Wax Capt. Kirk has a painterly look to him that made for a cool foreground object. The tiny red-coated people in the third place image gave a good point of reference to a giant disaster. We liked the relatively tight crop of the scene.
