This category was a struggle. Again a lot of really strange choices of boring scenes and oddly captured "series" entries. Lazy composition hurt some entries. The first place photo had an interesting juxtaposition with the plane and made us linger more than the others. Second was clean and well composed. (some times that's all it takes) Third we liked the attempt at layering, but believe there was probably a better moment with some expressions.
