The first-place winner for Spot News the monochromatic and smoky background helps the subjects standout and leads you to the emotional expression of the person arrested. All the photographs in the category contained emotion and a sense of expectancy. You were on the edge of your seat wanting to read the captions for context. All captions did fill in the details. These were good examples of words and pictures working together.
