  • The I-Shot-It team is pleased to announce this superb image as the winner of this Child Competition. The warm light from the garden below, and the cool light of the sky, truly compliment each other well. The girl with wings above, and the dark wall as background. However this was done, it is a wonderful photograph, with a lot of room for the observer’s imagination.

  • This soulful image warms our hearts! The main character being in focus, and the other children in motion, dancing around their friend. Shadows of branches and leaves from trees give some context, as well as complexity to this capture.

  • Thank you so much dear judges and I shot It team. I am MD Shafiul Islam. I always love to express story and moment in my photograph. I have taken the image at a village in northern Bangladesh. I used my Nikon d7100 with a kit lens.

  • The silhouette of a playful person, against, what seems to be an enormous deflated balloon, is a great idea of an image. The crop could be a little tighter, more on the focus of the person, then, it would be an even a stronger photo. Very well seen and executed!

  • Beautifully and tenderly shown in this photograph, how this young boy is being guided by different adults/people. This young person seems to have a lot of love in his life. Having the main character agains the white background makes him stand out.

  • Those smiles of happiness are unbeatable. Who can resist, not smiling back at these beautiful young people? Who needs words when looking at this vibrant and positive photograph? The energy of this boy is mesmerizing. And not only of this boy - all the kids look happy! Black and white works well to show this photo. It makes the observer focus on the expressions of these lovely children.

  • Four strong man, in different age groups, seem to be involved in serious conversations. This environmental portrait gives good context of where they are gathering, with a possible storm brewing up high, in the sky. An acrobatic young man showing his strength, looking at the word, upside down. Well done!

  • This is a well composed photograph. Unusual and clever, how the photographer uses the legs as a frame, within the frame.

  • Being within his own company and being focused on those marbles - we think that this is a smart young person. Someone else, in the the distance, shows an interest as well. Or is the interest more being directed to the photographer?

  • Portrait format in this photo works well. The oval balloon, almost centered in the rectangle format of the image provides great composition. Something beautiful and artistic - a photo which asks questions.
