Photo by Jessica Morrison

Jessica Morrison, 15, and her step-cousin Danika were goofing around in a field near their grandparents’ cottage in Bethany, Ont., when Jessica lay down and noticed the flower sticking up farther than her head. Danika unexpectedly ran toward the camera when Jessica took the shot. “I thought this was a pretty cool picture. It looked kind of fairy-tale like.”

Judges’ comments

There are lot of small things happening in the photo that make it excellent: The shot plays with the scale, the girl’s shirt matches the flower, and her hands echo its shape. There’s also a similar golden quality to the hair and the clouds. The greenery on the right makes it feel like you’re peeking around the corner at the scene. It’s spontaneous and intriguing.
