River elfPhotographer : WindLaLa Camera used : Caplio R4
I photographed children playing by the river in the rays of the summer's evening sun.
With everything perfectly captured, my inclination is to just sum things up with the comment "Too good to be true," but the appeal of this photograph goes beyond that. Even if it is a premeditated performance, that's okay. The expressiveness and liveliness here give courage and energy to the viewer.(Judge:Kazuyuki Okajima)
The movements of each of the characters and the long shadows give a sense of story to the photograph. The contrast with the setting-sun-drenched sand is excellent. The composition is also well put together, with a sense of stability.(Judge:Ryo Ohwada)
