First was a very intimate tight shot the facial expressions make you feel the sorrow. We thought second place was just as strong of candlelight vigil photos but it suffered from too many repetitive frames, give us your top two or three and it might of finished first. Third also suffered from too many frames we loved the story idea but the photographer stretched 3 solid images into 6.
