Overall there was a variety of great photos to choose from in this category. 1. This photo was the obvious pick for a great sports image. It was one of few tight images we saw in this category that was straight to the point and very clean. The light perfectly falls on the subjects' faces. The women's expression is priceless and accurately depicts the event. 2. This sports action photo has great expressions and quality peak action. A second too earlier or late and the moment would have been missed. 3. This skiing feature was unique and really stood out from the crowd. It's a clean image and provided several points of interest that added information to the frame.
