Overall this was a good group of photos with some nice diversity in images. We felt the Frida Khalo photo really stood out from the rest visually and kept drawing us back during discussions. The moment between the two girls under the blanket really stood out as well and was the best moment-driven image, but the graphic nature of the Frida photo really kept it in the lead. The spinning artist photo also held out attention but the crop ultimately took it down a few notches.
