Shooter's Comments:

For the speech by Burmese democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, I was perched on a riser at the other end of the Coliseum floor. I had a 300mm lens with a 1.4 extender attached, mounted on a tripod.

I knew when the students would be presenting Suu Kyi with flowers, but I didn't know if they would be on stage with her. I captured a nice moment with Suu Kyi and Julie Mano. It's a litte soft because of the extender and high ISO, but it is still the best photo I took of the event.
