1st. Easily the best image in the batch. Great composition, great expression. Seeing a human body how you wouldn’t normally see it. 2nd. The har flip and the motion of the water coming off it did it for us. Great shot. 3rd. Not only is this image a different angle, but we loved being able to see 5/5 faces and the ball.
