We put FingerTips as first place as the photographer was able to capture both peak moment along with the intensity on the players' faces. Photographers for the second and third place photos also captured strong emotions and could have easily been selected first. Finally, we put the pitcher photo for honorable mention because photographer framed the ball perfectly and produced a quirky image.
