Congrats on the honourable mention. In my opinion it is very hard to get a candid shot that is actually a decent photo, and this one is great :)

Nice shot. I'd have cropped the lower half off - it's just distracting.

An absolutely perfect shot from a graduation. Clear, good lighting, really shows a great concept of friendship. One of the best in the challenge.

I like this photo a lot.. In fact, it's one of my top picks in this challenge. I look for this scene myself when I'm photographing graduations, and this one is better than any I have come up with in the past. It makes great 'feature art' in a newspaper for graduation... 10

What a great moment. The detail in the two girls is nice with the people in front to the sides blurred some. Nice work.

Excellent range of tones and contrasts in the B&W. Very well composed
