We tried not to nerd out at all of the storm trooper photos. We had a good laugh and immediately read the caption to know more. A fun photo. The ballet photo is really nice compositionally and story wise. Nice work. The restoration photo was debated heavily against another compositionally interesting photo. A nice find with a potentially visually boring story. There were a lot of really great images here. Secretly wondering why portrait and pictorial are not categories for NPPA MCC.
