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

Tombstones Winner

Roger Katzenberg is the first place winner of this week’s SunShots theme, “Tombstones,” for his image of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, shot with a Nikon D7100; lens at 90mm; f7.1; 1/500 sec. and ISO 100. Baltimore Sun photographer Algerina Perna critiques,  “ Katzenberg’s image is as exact as the military precision of the soldier guarding the tomb. He froze the soldier’s movement mid-step, and delineated his profile against the tomb’s white marble. With only a split-second margin of error, he framed the soldier walking between the wreath and the tomb. The photo is tack sharp, and the composition is tight with no extraneous information to detract from the core action.”
