The judges loved first place. The composition, light and unique moment made it rise to the top. Second place was the best emotion and the judges appreciated the intimacy of the moment. Third is a well composed image with good moments within the frame. The judges had questions about the varying skin tones and assumed it was due to stadium lighting.
