What a stunning way to tell this story. Another immediate first place without even a discussion. We love the handwriting and the way you showed the two sisters and how they view their lives differently. This was one of the images in the entire competition that made us immensely proud for the next generation. Absolutely beautiful.

The energy is magnificent, I think the sky is overexposed a bit but overall their expressions make up for it entirely. Great essence of the people within it. Can use some better lighting and framing- room to grow, but we wanted to award it second because of the way interesting way people were captured. It wasn't just a photo of people sitting there, you found their essence. Keep moving towards that in your shooting, the technical stuff will follow suit.

The great caption really elevated the frame. Good use of space and finding a way to photograph something that is hard to show.
