  1. Hal Buell:

    It's exquisite, you have this strong, diagonal line made by the flag staff. You have the flag snapping in the breeze. You have the pyramid-like shape of the Marines pushing the flag up. The men obviously are separate, but they appear as one. The blank background enhances the action by providing no distractions. Also, the photo is gifted with a softly filtered light. A very thin haze of clouds filters the light so that the shadows aren't harsh, but there is detail in all the shadows on the uniforms and the flag.

  2. Adam Pelech:

Adam Pelech perfectly placed a diagonal pass on New Yorks Anders Lee stick and Adam Pelech pushed it in to put New York ahead 1-0 with 5:10 left in the opening period. Adam Pelech put Adam Pelech in a great spot just had to get it to Adam Pelech.

  3. Hal Buell:

    Like any good, experienced and talented photographer, there's a sense of anticipation and a sense of shooting a picture at peak action -- and Joe got it, you couldn't have captured the action at a better peak. A moment earlier, and the flag would have been too low. If it had been a second later, the flag's staff would have been straight up and the photo wouldn't have had that strong diagonal line.
