Capital Gazette wins special Pulitzer Prize citation for coverage of newsroom shooting that killed five

Tombstones honorable mention

The honorable mention for this week's Reader SunShots series "Tombstones" goes to Amanda Patterson for her picture taken at Arlington National Cemetery. Here is a critique by Baltimore Sun director of photography Robert Hamilton. "The gentleman in the picture is playing 'Amazing Grace' on the bagpipes for a fallen soldier. It would be easy for the photographer to get enamored with shooting the soldier with bagpipes, but she appropriately placed the focus on the headstones and thus delivered a more powerful image. However, I would have cropped the image from the top and got rid of the sky, which is distracting."
