We found that entries containing multiple photos were not made better by presence of multiple images (for example, weakened by images that weren’t up to par with others or needed much tighter, intentional edits). Winning images featured most unique moments. First place mermaid images gave us an instant laugh, made us want to know more, had clean composition. We all agreed, we would be happy to come away from a daily assignment with this. Of several poll photos, second place winner was our favorite moment. Third place image was a strange moment from an otherwise typical scene, photog took a chance shooting at lower angle.
