The strongest category by far, this was a tough one. First place was the clear winner, literally. The uniqueness of the hug on a dismount, emotion and clean composition had this rise to the top. Second place this is one of those rare frames where it's a detail, a portrait and a feature all rolled into one. A strong diagonal composition, emotion, moment and color helped this frame sing. Way to be to look out for something like this. Third place was such a nice unique moment easily missed. Kudos for juggling the sideline and the game.
