Not the strongest category. Overall the pictures lacked a sense of good composition and balancing the foreground subject and its relationship to the background. A distracting background just kills a good moment. Be aware of all the elements within your viewfinder and know that a wide-angle lens often reveals more information that can detract from good subject matter. The winning photos were examples of clean, concise reportage.
