Extremely low number of entries in this group. First place entry displayed varied and interesting camera angles. Homebirth was a well done photo story, without any unnecessary images. Photographer captured the mother’s exhaustion and happiness with good composition, details, and wise use of lenses. Superstar was a nice feel-good story. Her personality shines through. Hopefully this story was a big hit in that community.
