First place stood out with so many frames that really showcased the personalities of both the owners and the dogs. First image of the second place series really was striking. There were also a number of photos that highlighted the personality of the cosplay. Felt like a few frames could have been taken out. Third place had a number of nice angles and strong images. Dedication of the photographer to get in the dirt to get the base photo. Would have only had one selfie pic and maybe used a detail shot of the socks and mat frame.
