This category had lots of miscategorized images that should have been in the illustration, spot, or general news categories. First place was the strongest photo, despite it being a peacock and not a person, thanks to its great use of color and leading lines towards the subject. Second place was a graphic frame that made good use of a low angle and more leading lines, though we wondered if cropping in on the right might help it more. Third place was a good moment and expression captured in a challenging shooting situation, but the extra half face on the right really hurts this image and a tighter crop would have greatly improved it.
