1st place The subject’s seemingly pointless attempt to ring water out of the insulation in his flood damaged house really brings home the devastation of the flood to the reader. Well framed. 2nd In the chaos of all of the rubble it is hard to find a focal point but the use of the mirror lends some order to all the disorder. Nicely done. The touching moment of the grandmother/granddaughter with the sunken house in the background elevated it to 3rd place.
