Robert KirkhamThe Buffalo News
First place is a very powerful moment, we would like to see names and some more info about these men though. Second captures a nice emotional moment that tells a story and capturing the light like this. A very emotional and technically proficient image. Third place has a lot of very compelling images and we appreciate that it was photographed over several days but it needs a tighter edit.
