Judges note: we understand that it can be hard to decide if a photo is Feature or General News, but there were some photos submitted in this category that we felt were clearly Feature photos. First place: Nice composition, use of the available light, and telling the story of the place. Second Place: Nice moments, and succinct edit. We are not fans of the squareish crops. Third place: Good composition, and cute moment found at an event.
