The winner of this week's SunShots series "Sweets" is Pat Schwartz for her picture of her granddaughter, Gabby, celebrating her 12th birthday. She used a Sony DSC-H9 point-and-shoot camera. Here is a critique by Baltimore Sun deputy director of photography Jeffrey F.Bill: "I selected this photo as the winner because it captured what appears to be a nice, soft and quiet moment before blowing out the last candle on the cake. The photographer burned down the edges, successfully drawing the viewer's attention to the girl and the candle."
