First place had a good variety overall, but there were several redundant photos. The strong storytelling of the event lifted it above the others. Second place was not far behind. It was filled with good moments, but all the photos had a similar feel. Could have used some detail shots to mix it up. Third place didn't have the depth of the other two, but it was two very nice photos.
