"The photographer chose a good
angle to photograph the subject taking
advantage of the available light, which not

but the billowing smoke as well. His creative
approach added to the exotic feel of
the picture."

Cool Down winner

Cool Down winner

Rob Lynch is the winner of this week's Reader Sunshot theme, "Cool Down" for a photo of his daughter, Maggie and her friend Zoe playing under the water spout at a community pool. The photo was taken with a Kodak Easyshare point-and-shoot camera. Lynch writes, "I liked the way the water enveloped the girls and refracted their image, so I snapped a couple photos and was lucky to get this one." Photo editor Jerry Jackson comments, "Very creative! The tight crop helps emphasize the girls and the distortion though I would be tempted to take even more off the top."
