      Juror's Comment

      From Kate Jordahl:

      "This image is vibrant in spirit. Capturing the water, the silhouette, and the texture of water, this photograph exhibits the determined pursuit of joy. The graphic shapes of the three figures moving right, left and up creates movement in time and space that is dynamic."

    Artist Statement

    "On an unusually hot, sunny summer day in Portland, Oregon, children were splashing in the pulsating plumes of a big fountain near the waterfront. It was a perfect photo moment, and I was glad I had packed my camera with a long lens on my bike, so that I could stop and take some shots. It is hard to miss with kids, water and backlight."
