There were some very nice images that were submitted as a group. The weaker images within those multiple entries dragged them down while single images should have been entered instead. Edit tighter!! First-We debated this one whether this was a spot news image or general news, we went with general news only because it was a scheduled event. Nice tight image of the man being rescued was an easy winner. Second-Photographer was able to pull out a nice image from an event which could have been a real snoozer which we've all been too. Nice work. Third-Solid image without being intrusive.
