Perfect off-camera flash with the first place image - love seeing the beads of sweat on her face and sheen on her arms and shoulders. The dark/overcast background creates a mood and directs attention to the boy's red hair, blue eyes and green shirt. Third place is a funny and storytelling portrait.
