Lots of entries in this category that would have been better off as single submissions rather than series. First - Great moment captured at peak emotion, even subject in the way back, nice attention to details there. Strong lines direct you to action with fun context in background reaction. Second - Great composition, angle and attention to light make this a unique standout at what could have been a mundane march moment. Third - Creative, compositional take, on a very thread-bear subject that directs viewer in a focused way, giving personality to a potentially very quiet moment.
