This was a reasonably strong category but it had a ton of entries. Many images were close but were lacking better crops or moments. First place was the clear winner. It is unique, graphic, funny and overall great. A true feature. Second place is very visual, has nice light and comes together really well. Third place is a fun take on what could be a really routine assignment. The photographer had to be really excited when Elvis pulled up. It tells the story well with a fun slant.
