1st Vintage baseball isn't something we see down here, so it had that going for it. It also was tightly edited which raised it to the number one spot. 2nd. Bayside entry had some excellent images. The photographer obviously spent a lot of time working this neighborhood. Unfortunately, the edit was way too loose and the pictures didn't feel like they all belonged together which gave it a disjointed feel. If this had been cut down to 10 or 12 images it would easily have swapped places with the first place winner. 3rd. The Great Hill Dairy essay was well shot, but felt like a process piece on how to make cheese. We would have loved to have seen some moments and gotten a feel for the place rather than just cool pictures of cheese and cheese vats.
