There were plenty of very strong photos in this category as well, probably the hardest decisions we made. The competition is always between the best game action and the best reactions, and there was no lack of either. First place was actually the last photo we saw in the category, and all three judges picked it as the winner. The power of the emotion is undeniable, and the photographer took us right into the middle of the huddle to share the moment. Second place showed good effort, taking a routine event and working hard to find the best angle and lens choice to capture great expressions.
