First- Good framing, different from the rest of the entries. The photographers sense of humor shows in the image. The cutline needs more background information. Second- Good use of motion blur, while keeping the subject tack sharp. A different view of Sandy damage. Third- Good point of view and catching the ice flying through the air. Great storytelling in the caption. With the exception of the winners, overall a fairly weak/slim category
