FIRST - Nice moment. Facial expression really makes it work. SECOND - Good energy and framing. We like seeing the periphery too. THIRD - Good facial expressions here. Could use a crop on the right side as the kids’ faces on the bottom left are what make the frame. There were several photos in this category that could have made a decent feature or portrait but definitely did not belong in general news.
