This one has me in tears. Oh my. I wish every child in school looked like these kids boys do. Your focal person totally looks like a future soldier. This is more than touching. The sobriety in their faces alone and then the one boy looking up to what is obviously his nations flag.

Even the boy tucked behind the flag stirs my heart.

Amazing image and hope you get extremely high marks for this images with the judges. If I were a judge it would go Gold.

Yes, I took a number of these scouts...they were great...yes, you are right, the boy looking up is looking at the flag being raised. Many heart warming sights that day...I now think of what I may have done differently, but I am very happy with what I took..You make me happy and proud to know others liked it too. It would be great to get a EFP again too.
Hugs, Lydia #10720895
