The first place image rose to the top quickly. It has a unique perspective, good balance, and great light which makes it stand out from the rest. The second place image is an interesting behind-the-scenes moment that draws you in. It is also well-composed. Third place is captivating and the photographer had to have perfect timing to get the image.
