First place: great moment. Interesting composition. Second place: Good use of silhouette against the sun, interesting photo of a situation seemingly every photographer has shot. Third place: feels like street photography, could have been stronger in the placement (avoid the intersecting lines). Alternate and the third place were extremely close in the running, we felt that the third place took a little more thought before making the photo, but we love that the alternate took a step back to think about the overall situation instead of rushing for up-close faces.
