General news was a good category with a good variety. First place, Protest Come to Galesburg was well executed. The framing of the man's face in the window and the intensity on his face while holding the sign was great as well as the timing . Second place, Son Gunned Down was a very emotional image where the photographer took chances to be more intimate and tell the story so viewer could "feel" it. Third place, Restored Pump House was very well composed and the light was excellent. We love that the photographer got a human element in the shot.
