Congratulations on your win! This is certainly an image to be treasured! You captured both the relationship between your husband and your son as well as the playfulness and fun of childhood.

This was one of those special moments between father and son. Lighting, everything perfect. I raced to get my camera and with only 2 shots left (of course) and ISO 100 (oh, no), I captured one of my most treasured memories!
