A strong category. We liked the lighting and the thought required to use a long exposure to capture the cascade of sparks falling from above for first place. Lighting was also really nice. Second place was a great slice of life picture. We also enjoyed the caption and making clear to the audience that they were just platonic friends. Third place was an unusual angle and great capture of action. The feature single category had a lot of great entries.
