    Awesome that we like a photo enough to suggest it's the best of the year, but don't feel a need to credit the photographer. "Well done, whoever you are."

    Touching moment, but not picture of the year.

    Too many compositional problems.

    When you've got a duck in a barrel, you'd best shoot it well.

    Oh I'm sure it would not hold up when all the factors are considered, but that mother nailed the moment.

    Well, now the Thread title reads "Amatuer picture of the year" so, I probably shouldn't be such a hard ass.

    Glad I could help.

    Had a guy on staff who spelled it amatuer every single time. For years. No matter how many reminders.

    Should've. Should've. Should've. Should've.


    It's not should of, it's should have.
