1st The emotion in this image is real and raw. It is well-composed and storytelling. 2nd This picture is complex and required a lot of long, hard looks to figure out what all is happening. Thank you for a solid caption. The color, elements and layering create a surreal scene. Not your typical spot news picture. 3rd We really like the pairing of the first and second images, but the third image nearly knocked this series out of contention. However, the rules state you must have at least three images to enter as a multiple. The third image wasn't bad... just seemed redundant.
