    LOL! O.k. O.k. next time I'll suggest having the kids taking a photo of the photog sitting on the horse and the Mountie standing to the side! Congrats on #4!

    fc. Thanks for the comments. You had better see our club president, Alberto (Boar) if you want to start using a chainsaw (see the forums) :-)

    Bill. Many thanks for your comments. I was torn between photog in or out and decided to use one of each. I thought that having the photog in was a better fit for the theme. That is what most of them are doing most of the time. I swear some tourists never see their destination until they go home and look at their photos LOL.

    Similar comments as for the main entry, but what makes this special for me is that it is obvious that they are posing for someone else, even though the photographer is not shown. Even better that he/she is not in the photo I think. Again, fine facial expressions and composition. In my top5.

    raf. Appreciate your comments. Right on about the kid's expressions - they absolutely cracked me up. Our albums must look similar to yours.

Old Finn. Thank you, glad you liked this one too!

    Make up your mind Jade. After reading your comments for my entry in the Main, I asked this guy to stop taking the photo and move move into the frame. He held up a finger to indicate that he would only be a minute - but then he moved away and took his kids with him. Weird :-O
Seriously, thanks for the comment.

    Suits to the topic, nicely composed, good sharpness. In my favorites.

    There's that funny costume and monumental building again.

I just love the expression on the kids faces, and their body language. They are trying for Mum & Dad (I assume), but could they look any cheesier. I have hundreds like it with the kids forced to smile because I wanted a shot.

Gotta be high in TT given the great match to theme.

    Seems thjs is either three siblings or, more likely, tourists posing for a shot with an iconic figure.

Nicely framed and a perfect example of tourists being touristy! (Wonder if including the photog in the frame would have added impact?)
