We got this category down to five photos pretty quickly but then had to leave two photos out of the final spots that were both really deserving. First place really comes together with all those faces. Second place is a beautiful off beat feature. Nice "seeing." Third ultimately won out not just because of the graphic quality, but because the ball and the tee just lined up perfectly. Honorable mentions go to a sweet golf reaction photo from Maine and a beautiful track and field finish line prayer photo from Quebec. Both could easily have made the final cut.
