This photo submitted by Greg Kendall-Ball is pretty good. Although we see similar photos all the time this one is particularly interesting. The strong eye contact of the boy in front and the out of focus boy in the background is really engaging. I like the sepia tone color. It adds a nice element to the photo. The exposure is well done. There is plenty of detail in the mid tones and shadows. The highlights are slightly blown out on the boy's arm and his bear. One suggestion I have is to crop part of the left side of the photo so there is more emphasis on the boy and less background.
