These boys were peacefully flying a simple kite on a warm Seattle afternoon, while their father ranted and loudly cursed his fancy new trick kite.

Gasworks park and kite flying in the summer just go hand in hand around here.

There were other more conventional summer shots I could have submitted but for some reason I really fell in love with this one. I'm curious to see how this does in the scoring..I'll guess 5.1.

I shot in color and coverted to B&W in Photoshop.

Thanks for all the comments. This is my favorite shot of all I have submitted so far. I'm happy about how well it did.

Point of view from rear is excellent choice! Adds human-ness to it. 9

this is really nice how you have them looking away from the camera giving it a more natural look

I think I'd rather see this in colour. Nice shot though :)

Cool photo. Excellent poses from the kids, and the focus is great. I wish you could see the kite though!
