First place was well framed and evokes feeling. The caption is too long. Second place was well done but the series would have benefited from more variety or consistency to make them feel more cohesive. Third has nice expression and a relevant background. There were several entries that were a series that suffered from lack of editing. They could have placed higher had they chosen the strongest portrait to enter.
