The images in the first place story were all just perfectly composed and told the story of deployment in a nice tight edit - we couldn't think of a single angle or shot that would have made it stronger it was really well done. Second place story also has very strong images from a spot news event. Third place tells a nice story, we just wanted a tighter edit.
