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.
