Taken out at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Loved the golden late afternoon light, the colors on the bubbles, the smiles, the breaking bubble and the one hiding the little girl's face, the other kid's hand coming in to the picture, the handholding couple in the back. I just really like this one! Makes me smile.

Wonderful - theres an almost fairy tale feel to this and a timelessness of laughter.

Very nice shot and processing.

Maybe it's just how the light is hitting things, but it really feels like there is some extra glow in the photo. Did you do anything special in post processing to help that?
