Judges Comments

First place is a powerful storytelling photo of restaurant employees trying to cope with the sudden loss of a co­worker who drowned trying to save some struggling swimmers. Clean composition, strong faces. Second place fire package showed good use of light and composition, but needed a tighter edit. Third place was an unusual scene from a routine fire. Nice seeing.
