For DMC we had to take 1,000 photos and then from these pick our 5 best, and eventually our favorite. I choose this photo because of the vibrant colors and the unusual scene. I also think that the positioning of the subjects is unique, as they appear to be framing the photo. At first I was unsure about the subjects’ heads being cut off, but I feel it adds to the excitement and feel of adrenaline that the photo gives off.
