Easily the winner. So good. Keep this in your portfolio for years to come. Frame this. Put it on a wall. Just bravo. The emotion, the framing, the color, it's all there. I would run this photo 6 columns.

What a good “found” sports moment. While not technically the most brilliant, it would benefit from a longer lens, it's just such good seeing and reacting on the photogs part that it had to be second.

This photo is very traditional but it's clean, you got the decisive moment, the look, the smile. It's very nice.
Honorable Mention: Great seeing and capturing, we enjoyed the layering of the two women but wished for just a peep more emotion from the women in the back- whether that's a sliver of a face or the entire dejected face.
