Went to the beach in the morning hoping to get a candid shot. The moment I saw these cute kids having fun playing in water, I knew I got my shot. This is my second entry here. Hoping to score better than the first :). Let's see how it goes..

I just noticed this knocked my shoehorn fly out of the #1 spot on the S5 page. Nice going! More proof that it's the photographer, not the camera.

It is a great feeling to win a ribbon in a place which has a number of brilliant photographers.
Thanks for the votes and special thanks for all the wonderful comments.

Having said that, I cannot take full credit for this ribbon. Anyone who happened to be there at this particular place with a camera could have got this shot.
So, I dedicate this ribbon to those cute, charming, little kids.

Now the challenge for me is to beat this one in terms of rating. Nevertheless, this shot will remain special to me.

Great shot and very deserving of a ribbon. For the life of me I don't get the voters in this place. How could this image have possibly gotten 9 votes of three or less? Stupid!
Regarding one of the comments - people, calibrate your monitors, please.

Terrific shot! Very well done, looks so warm and inviting. The spontaneously happy smile on the girl's face is priceless. Well done!

Aauuuugh... this is such a great photo. What a radiant smile that child has. He radiates everything that's wonderful about childhood. And I'll say it did better than your first entry. Honorable mention 2nd time out is quite an accomplishment :) CONGRATULATIONS!
