Fist: Kudos to the photographer for getting close in a difficult situation. One of those Spot News photos that really engage the viewer. Second: Well-executed image in some challenging lighting conditions. Third: Might have liked to have seen a little more from a compositional standpoint on this one, but it’s a pretty unique situation and scenario we haven’t seen before.
