Judges Comments

  • Straightforward view of kids asleep captures the innocence of children. Intelligent composition – sweep of couch compliments the pose of absolute relaxation and haphazard drape of the kids. I love that the little girl is so tired that she has fallen asleep standing up. They are both exhausted yet it seems to still be daylight. The photographer has found a really sweet moment. So sweet - the little girl sleeping standing up is hysterical. Nice crop and light. It seems as though the photographer caught this duo at the moment they collapsed, making it seem very real.
