There was no time to compose this shot or adjust camera controls, but I love that it captures a moment of the joy of childhood.


Joy of childhood, by Toni Beauchamp

Nikon 5100; 28-50mm lens

Don’s response

It’s easy to see why Toni saved this picture.

Despite its spur-of-the-moment capture, the composition is nicely balanced between the two kids in the foreground and the playful wall art.

I like how the colour palette is so harmonious too. It brings the picture together in a subtle way.

A good catch!
