Big category with a lot of variety and some really nice photos that just didn't make the final cut, but were all worthy entries. First place rose to the top not only because it is a fun found moment, but because we all know how hard it can be to pick such a beautiful moment out of the assault on the senses that an art festival can sometimes become. Very nicely done. Second might be "another kid in a sprinkler photo" but the photographer did a fine job of avoiding the obvious. Third place is a photo that gets your attention quickly but gives you a lot to see the longer you look at the photo.
