Judges Comment

A frozen moment and a beautiful portrait. It looks so natural. I like the tousled hair and the beautiful soft colors. The facial expression is somehow sad, the eyes a bit glassy - maybe just a second away from crying. This fact gives this colorful picture a melancholic touch. Congratulations to the winner! A fabulous picture.

Photographers Comment

Thank you so much for this honor. This picture is dedicated to my inspiration, my amazing daughter Isla (2 and 1/2). I took on photography as a way to extend her life, where she will use these pictures to recall a childhood in rich detail where her own memory will fail her. To convey the emotional journey of her life through photography is a challenge that adds true purpose to my own life. I definitely teared up a little when I found this shot in my review. Taken at Mt. Pinos, CA during her first camping trip with daddy. Sony A7 / Zeiss 55mm F1.8.
