First place really stood out because of the number of zingers in the package. The photographer obviously spent a lot of time with the project. Could have been a bit tighter but the sheer number of great images caused it to rise to the top. Second place had strong reaction, good tight frame. The supplemental faces in the frame also helped. Third place was a nice cute moment with good personality from a potentially mundane event.
