Judges Comments

This category was pretty thin, but we thought the three winners did a good job. Other entries were lacking in either storytelling, technical, or artistic quality. 1st place ­ The photo of a rescued dog being handed back to its owner was a nice moment that captured some of the emotion and potential danger of the house fire. The exposure could have been better, and we would have preferred the focus to be on the woman and dog rather than the officer. 2nd place ­ Nicely composed and timed to make it a strong graphic shot of a static scene. 3rd place ­ The photographer chose a good angle to.
