There were a lot of really goo entries in this category. First place stood out immediately as the winner. It was a great portrait series of black farmers. It was so good as a series, that one of our judges had two of the photos in his top three as individual photos before realizing it was a group entry. Second place was a nice portrait of a baseball director. We liked the use of the chain link dugout fence leading into him. Third place was of a food truck owner. We originally wanted to place it higher, but the guy standing in the background kept distracting us.
