First place could probably have used a slightly tighter edit, but the photographer clearly worked very hard to get in and out of these situations. Solid storytelling. Second, we realize is probably from a drone, but it’s very powerful moment and view of the destruction. Third place needed to be toned a bit better and perhaps cropped different but certain shows emotion.
