A picture I took this morning at Siem Reap, Cambodia. It is almost 5 am now and although I have a lot of shots that I could have submitted, I don't have a chance to look at all of them.

This one was a quick choice. I am not that hopeful about the score but this is something I would not normally do.

Critique Club Comment

Hi from the critique club,

So finaly I can critique one of your photos.
Manny, as you know I am a great fan of your work, I mostly like everything you do, but your children photo's are realy the best.
You know how to capture youth as no other, the fun, the laughter, and know to capture it in a way that you feel you are part of it.

This is another example of that. It's so real, so full of life and fun. It is more that just a photo, you have captured the feeling.

Waht can I say? How can I tell you how to improve it?
Impossible!

This is a well deserved ribbon.

Keep on shooting.

Peter
