Not many entries in this category. First Place: An easy pick even with some toning issues. Second Place: A frame that MAKES someone read the caption. NOTE: To the photographer that entered the fire training photo: Nice frame. NOT SPOT NEWS. It may have been unscheduled to the firefighters but it was still planned, and therefore a general news image.
