Lovely work all around in this category, it took a few passes to come to a decision on the top 3. There were a number that were also almost just as strong, fyi. The first has a lingering quality to it, even though it's quite. It has a timeless feel to it. The second place was visual, and really popped. The third place was touching and compliments to the photographer who was able to be trusted to be there in their presence. Nice work all around.
