FEATURE

Comments:The top 3 clearly rose to the top with their well thought out composition and moments. First place was the only photo that used layers to surround the moment and it jumped out to us.

NEWS

Comments: This was a tough category for us because of the lack of moments, well thought out composition. First place has some nice emotion, but the rest is lacking. Second used nice composition to make for a decent photo from a lackluster situation and third had a different take on a podium shot. We had this honorable mention because it surprised us the most. It was definitely the oddest.

SPORTS


Comments:Once again, the top 3 were obvious. Nice peak action, but all could have been improved on. We would have also liked to have to have seen some stronger off the field photos. Lots of great photos happen off the field!

Comments:The first place story was well done with nice composition and moments from an ever-changing situation. The black and white added a nice touch as well. The airshow had some nice moments and visual variety and the third place had some nice images from a fairly boring situation.
