Overall, an extremely weak category. The first place was an interesting story, wonderful job finding the story. However, it lacked variety images, the same image was repeated twice, lots of back of the head photos, and a lack of a story arch. If you would have stuck with the story a little longer, you may have had more variety and told a stronger story.
