Contest Theme: Spring
Prize: Three rolls of film developed for free!
From the Artist: "This was taken during my semester abroad to Korea at the peak of cherry blossom season at Deoksugung (덕수궁) Palace in Seoul. I spotted this little kid as he was posing for his Mom, and I just really loved his outfit. I often look at this photo and hope he grows up well, and continues being an absolute fashion icon."
What We Liked: Over the past few weeks, we have been enjoying the beauty of the blooming cherry blossoms throughout the city—a sure sign that spring has arrived! This image caught our attention due to its excellent use of composition and color. The dissonance between its various elements—including the child in the lower right, the branches above, and even the shoulder of the person on the left—play off of each other, ultimately contributing to the coherence of the image as a whole.
