The entries in this category could benefit from a tighter edit and more visual variety.
First- This story has a clear beginning, middle and end. No one particular image jumps out at us, they're all at the same level/good. Good visual variety, and we can tell some time was spent with the subject.
Second- Nice expressions and a few nice singles, but lacks a clear storyline like the first place entry. Some images were cropped too tight (missing body parts) and the first three images visually read the same.
Third- Less is more with this story. Lead and end on strong images. This first image in this story should not be included and knocked it down to third place.
