First: We really loved the moment here. The expression on the girls face is great. Second: This was a nice moment, but we thought the framing could have been worked a little bit more, dependent on how long this was happening for. We would have like to have seen the photographer capture this from a little lower. Third: The photographer definitely took a risk with this photo using a slow shutter speed, but it definitely paid off. We thought it was unique seeing, and that the moment and motion really made the photo work.
