Again, good participation in this category but a lot of the general news entries seemed a better fit in features category. First place photo had incredible emotion, well composed, and gave a sense of place. Second place photo displayed good composition and was a straightforward news photo. Third place photo almost seemed a better fit in portrait, but was very sharp and well-composed.
