1st Prize

Rob Herr, 35, engineer, Simi Valley, CA

Pulling up to his house on his way home from work one day, Rob Herr heard his young son playing in the driveway. When he opened the car door and spied him playing in the bucket, Herr dashed for his recently purchased rig and took a bunch of shots. His favorite is the last shot out of the bunch: When the youngster saw himself reflected in the UV filter covering Dad's lens (which was only a few inches away from the delighted boy's face), he pointed to his reflection and started to laugh. TECH INFO: Canon EOS 20D, 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Canon lens. Exposure, unreported; ISO 100. Minor cropping and corrections made using The Gimp 1.2.
