First place was well done. It was clean and it effectively told the story. Some of the images had really great framing and cropping to elevate their impact. We really liked the blanket detail, as well as the horse's head coming into the frame in the next image. Second place was strong but repetitive with a few images and needed a tighter edit. A tighter edit could've given it a higher placement. Third place was shot really beautifully. Some other entries could use a tighter edit.
