First place was well done essay on the aftermath of a natural disaster.It needed a tighter edit but the news value brought it to the top. The judges are not fans of signs but the second place photo showed the photographer's good sense to use the light to their favor. Third is a subtle moment displaying a sophisticated sense of composition.
