1st- A kind of story we've all seen before, but still executed very well. It's clear that the photographer spent a lot of time with the subject and got some nice moments because of that. Still want to know what is the story behind the missing limb (born that way/accident?) and would have liked to see a photo of him wrestling in a match instead of just practice. 2nd- Interesting look behind the scenes of a traveling hockey team. Some nice moments. 3rd- Very cool story with some well-executed photos. This would have placed better if it were edited down to about 12 photos - a lot of them seem to be redundant.
