    Thanks for the votes and comments. This little guy is very special in many ways. Not much chance to play with the flash or anything else - had to grab this while being ready to drop the camera and catch him :-) Love that little Olympus tough - it takes a beating and keeps on clicking LOL

    The fill flash hurts a bit here, I think. Maybe the same image with a vignette effect might play up the subject more. I agree this guy is fortunate not having a helicopter mom.

    just love the expression and can imagine the chat after the visit. you have to get him a hard hat. the red top brings out the dark background of the engine

    Good sharpness of subject. (Curious as to whether you tried lessening the intensity of the flash.)
I am sometimes conflicted in my voting when the photo needs an explanation to show that it fits the theme. This is the case here, as there is nothing in the photo that shows that this is clearly related to transport. Good luck in the voting.
