  • Two friends, or brothers, looking after each other in a careful way. You captured an unnoticed situation in a great picture! The composition works really well, also the colors - especially the red and the blue trousers, together with the background. There is a story in this picture and a conversation between these two boys without saying a word. Well done! Congratulations to the winner of this child competition!

  • Fantastic! Thank You! I made this picture in Cuba some years ago. The boys where really caring for each other. Because of the thin wire, for me, it looked like he was floating like an angel. It's wonderfull to see how they create their own playground out of almost nothing. It was such a seldom lucky moment where everything came together. Best regards, Willem

  • A beautiful portrait of a young girl. Her facial expression reminds a bit of a woman, no more of a child. Your photo tells a story, only with her facial expression. You captured more than just a really beautiful portrait.

  • A girl's dream in pink. But why does she look so sad? Or is she just concentrating? Altogether it is a very good photo. A photo that tells a story, with a lot of details in it. And sterotypes in pink … a lot of young ladies would switch their own room immediately for this one.

  • Thank you for the Mark of Excellence. I photographed my 5 year old daughter in her room, playing very concentrated with her Barbie doll. (SONY A7RII, FE 1,8/55 at 2,2)

  • A lovely portrait of a young lady with a cool hair style. This picture could also be from a movie. I really like the reduction, a clean white background and a foreground focused on the essential: a beautiful portrait in black and white.

  • (Canon 5D MK III, 32mm / F2.8 / 1/160sec) I came across this mother and child on an early morning walk through a mountain village on the Indonesian island of Lombok. She was delightfully curious and had the most piercing beautiful eyes which followed my every move as I walked behind them. It was one of those wonderful moments where you feel a deep connection and empathy with someone, even though you've never met before.

  • The summer sun in Queensland Australia lit up the water in the pool to take this fun shot. This photo is 13 years old and was taken with a Canon Powershot A70 with quite low pixels compared to modern models. I used Photoshop to sharpen and brighten it. Thats all!

  • Her facial expression is hard to interpret. Is she tired? I don't think so. I think she is completely in her own little world with her thoughts. Although it is hard to interpret this photograph, it transfers a lot of emotions. I really like it!

  • Threesome … I like the way these fellows interact with each other. Only one of them is looking directly into the camera. The background is clean and does not interrupt this scene.
