First place is simply a heart wrenching image. It could have used a tighter/different crop, but the emotion of the situation trumps all else here. Second place has all the elements you could want to tell the story well in a single image, as well as emotion. We were smitten to see it was shot with a cell phone. Third place is a great image that demands a second look. The line in the street makes this image.
