What do we see here? A moment in time, capturing the exuberance of youth, the sun's dazzling brightness shimmering on the water's surface, the play of light and shadow against the children's silhouettes. Note the little human detail in the outstretched fingers: sometimes a small thing can lift a good photo into the realm of the excellent. Although the children are from India, they could be from anywhere in the world. They are doing what children everywhere do: exploring the world through play and enjoying the moment.
