Our winners elevated pretty quickly in this category. We felt a number of the submissions might have been better-suited to General News, but our selections featured strong graphic and/or human interest qualities. First award was a very nicely executed and well-composed sunset image featuring great light and human interaction. Second place is a humorous interaction that made us laugh out loud. Third place is another terrific scenic augmented by a simple color palette.
