Shooter's Comments: I love this moment. It's genuine, sincere and, well, just plain happy. Could it have a better composition? Absolutely. Better light? Yes. Better moment? I don't think so.
At the end of the day it's about people being people and relating to their environment. Since it was the first day of school, there were some really sad faces. So, when I saw this happening, I fired away.
