First place was a beautiful moment and great emotion. The relationship between the friend and the mother was just different, it set it apart from the rest. Great job. The sobering homecoming had high news value and was a nice, tight edit and graphic. We had a hard time choosing between two images for 3rd place and we chose the hit-and-run image due to the human emotion and interaction.
