Judges Comments

First place is a picture postcard moment that just so happens to also be breaking news. You don't often say how beautiful a fire is! The other lights surrounding the boat makes this oddly serene. Second place we liked for the contributing layers of information especially the police tape. It's after the fact but the photographer obviously put some time and effort into making the best frame possible. Third place was surprisingly wide. We liked it but the people could have been framed better within the lights and darks. Thumbs up for getting names!
