- I love her reaction, and it makes me smile. It seems like a real moment that was surprising, and I loved to see images that surprise me. Very nice work in capturing this. I love the little girl's body language.
- You just can’t quite get over the little girl's expression as she is prodded and pulled by her family. Who knows how long the photographer had to wait to get this image, but it was worth. The vibrant colors add to the joyous energy of the photo.
