The winners stood out quickly from the rest of the submissions. Originality, peak action, good cropping distinguished winners. First - We knew instantly what was going on here, the expression on her face, the finger pointing tells it all, great reaction shot. Kudos to photographer who was paying attention. Second - Great peak action shot, good cropping, clean background - or as much as you can get in what looks like a pretty busy space — all around solid. Third - Unique ouch moment and cropped well to focus on key action.
