My camera settings may look a little wonky for this one. In retrospect would have preferred to have stopped down a bit more, lower the shutter speed and reduce the ISO. Birthday party at my neighbors and I had just recently got my new camera and 70-200. So just getting back into the swing of things. Lots of fast moving kids hence the high shutter speed. Love the R5 in M with auto ISO. Game changer over my old 5DmkII which got stuck at 400 ISO. Grab this moment towards the end of the party as the parents were 'relaxing. Just like the vibe from it. The little puff of smoke and relaxed mood add to the ambiance in my opinion.

A true candid with its typical appeal of multiple stories.

I didn't have time to comment on this during voting, but it struck me as an opening scene from a movie - like a Fast & Furious sequel or a group of SpecOps veterans who have formed a gang of bank robbers - or really any number of movies where someone from the government drives up on this scene to bring some bad news or another mission. ;-) Congrats on 5th.
