I love this shot, I feel like I want to trot right behind him. I like the sepia, and ageing of the shot.

Heather, this one's a hands-down success! It has all the right elements to tell the story, but most importantly, you captured the peak of a moment when his right foot left the sand and is poised over it. That adds the element of movement to the image and makes it come alive. Congratulations on seeing this moment building, and getting it right!
Nice touch on the sepia toning, too! Brenda

Oh, this may be redundant, but what a beautiful image! It has such a wonderful feeling to it. It's just so precious and captures the innocence and wonder of childhood. I can't imagine this image in standard color... your choice of sepia lends a tone of remembrance. This is an exceptional photo! I am an artist(painter), learning the technical aspect of photography. You obviously have both the technical and the artistic ability!

Blessings,
Sheridan

Thank you very much Sheridan. I actually started college as an art major, but became sidetracked and graduated with another degree. Photography fills my need to be artistic.

Heather, it's easy to see why the judges selected this beautiful image last summer. A belated congratulations to you for creating such a timeless, sentimental (in the best sense) work of art!
