Did y'all get some rain out there in February? Feature category was flooded with umbrella photos. First showed go use of a long lens to compress and tight framing to make the juxtaposition of George Washington and Richard Nixon poster pop. Well done. Second is an eye stopper image because of composition, reflection and moment. Someone was happy about blue skies it seems. Nice job of spotting a solid daily piece of wild art of the kite flying father-son duo and nailing the composition.
