1st place is really beautifully done, you feel the atmosphere and mood so well with a storytelling caption. 2nd: this photo is such a great example of making chicken salad out of chicken sh*t. You found the most amazing framing- but it fell from first because we wanted you to wait for the right moment; maybe a look on someones face or some sort of interaction. 3rd: this is so quirky and we love it. We have all seen the cutouts in stadiums but in a churck- great find.
