Getting a jump start | Second prize - Action!

Photo by Gwen Sampson

Erika always does the first jump of the day with a partner, says her mom, Gwen Sampson, who photographed her husband, Paul, with the 11-year-old at Miskwabi Lake, Ont., using her point-and-shoot “cottage camera,” bought at a school fundraising auction. “They’re very devoted to each other. It’s lovely to see them jumping together."

Judges’ comments

We agree! The photo makes us smile: Their bathing suits are awesome, and it’s hilarious that Paul is clutching that pool noodle for dear life. We like the tilted horizon, which gives the photo a stronger sense of action, and the fun zigzag line running from Paul’s right hand, through his arms, and then to Erika’s arms, adding visual interest. The photo was taken on the first try; they’re completely dry. That’s impressive.
