Tighter edits would have helped many entries place higher. Many captions were lacking in information. Double check captions for grammar and spelling errors. 1st A very nice collection of a variety of images with details and portraits to tell the story. Story easily flowed, something we haven’t seen before. Really well done. 2nd Good selection of quite moments. 3rd A little crop from the top, would make stronger, really nice and moody, hits home with all of us.
