First--This was a strong category with lots of unique images. Really liked the police photos for first place because the photographer captured a variety of subjects experiencing a variety of emotions. This is a story that isn't often told in photos, but should be and works well. Second-- We liked the use of the truck reflection as the story was about an opening of a truck place. Good job seeing something other than the obvious shot at an event that was likely boring. Third-- Liked this weather feature for its pictorial appeal and contrast.
