The first place photo had us guessing on context and scale in a charming way. Good graphic conception. The second place photo captured a quiet and cute moment away from the event's action. The third place moment is another nice graphic frame, taking advantage of height for composition. Our alternate for the category could have benefited from a tighter crop, removing the bright face and outdoor area with just the hands teasing that the child is at the window.
