First Place: Strong visual variety and a lot of well-composed photos. The descriptiveness of the captions gave us a good understanding of the event. Second Place: Good job of providing solid coverage of a community event. Several compositions stood out. It would have benefited from a tighter edit. We know that sometimes the stuff judges want to see isn't there to photograph, but we would have liked to see more emotion. Third Place: Good technical ability in capturing the lunar eclipse. We would have liked to see more variety, perhaps people watching the eclipse. It didn't stand out from other photos we saw when the eclipse happened.
