Adoption Day was the clear winner. Shot nicely with moments, care and attention to detail. We really felt this one. LoisAndrews was committed and thorough but needed a bit more unique seeing to help elevate it to first place. Shot very wide the entire essay, dragged it down to second. It would benefit having details and tight faces. Despite its shortcomings it was people and an event evidenced in the photos.
