    Seriously, You are very good at taking portraits...It isn't staged and the candids are the kind that win prizes...This is a great one! You would do good at photo journalism on the traveling that you do.

    Why spotlight a picture that's already hot?

    Just trying to take it all the way into an upcoming issue of JPG Magazine. Had a phone call today that this photo is a winner in a local photo contest called "One Book one Brampton". If you think it's worthy then help me by making it a favorite, commenting and voting when the theme comes up.

    All these beautiful teenagers have light in their eyes. The girl who leans out the window catches the light in her hair as well. Their smiles makes it such an inspiring picture, full of hope and future.
