First place wowed us, our immediate favorite. The photographer took what looks like a chaotic scene and made a beautiful portrait. Good use of natural light well framed with elements filling every corner and told the story well. Second place we appreciated the photographer finding something different at a normal repetitive event. Third we liked the photographers vision, time of day and setting were great and the birds just add.
