There were many to choose from, but a few rose to the top. First place has very strong emotion enhanced with good composition and color. (We think the photographer should consider cropping in more from the right for more impact and symmetry.) Second made us all giggle, because it is “so Bernie.” It also has great color , composition and a creative approach in the angle in which it was shot. Third is a nice catch of emotion from a baby saying goodbye to her military dad.
