This was the strongest category by far. The judges immediately agreed on first place.  Good expressions and energy. Second place was a nice moment from an other wise mundane assignment.

First place was an easy pick. It was a nice dynamic moment with lots of information in the frame. Second place had a nice reaction. Third place was the best of the what was left. This category had two portraits that would have definitely placed if they were in the proper category.

Sports category had a good mix of action and reaction. The judges liked the interaction of all four people in the First place picture. Second place was nice action with great expressions.

This is the weakest category of all. The judges were hard pressed to select a second and third place.

Comments:

The judges felt the contest lacked entries and participants. In a couple of cases we awarded second and third places just to fill the spots.
