Thanks so much Kara, Colette, Kristy, Diane, Terry Judy & Donna for your very wonderful comments. I really appreciate it. This is one of those shots where my camera settings were all wrong but the moment would only last for a few seconds...as the boys father walked toward him. Thanks to PSP9 I was finally able to remove the noise as a result of shooting at 800 ISO. It's a "special" shot for me so I have always been willing to try new things with it. Thanks again.

Thinks so very much everyone for your wonderful comments...if only you knew how much each and every word means to me. I couldn't ask for a better finalist than this one...for me it is a very special image for the reasons I took it and what it means. It has always reminded me of "The Circle Game" as the little boy looks in awe of Sunset with a whole life in front of him...filled with so many things...not all good...not all bad...but a life of experiencing many of the things the world has to offer -Kristi

Thanks so much everyone for the kind and generous comments. It's what makes a win like this so special. I took this over a year ago under conditions that weren't ideal. I was finally able to get rid of the noise/grain and I'm so happy that the judges found it worthy of a win here.
