First place got very intimate and captured the emotion of loss and mourning well during a raw moment. Second place captured the energy of a politician and a young fan in what may have been a very crowded scene to photograph. Third place we loved the moment but the composition was off because of the lens choice. It was too wide and we wished the photographer would have slightly changed the angle for more separation of subjects.
