Photographer: Lauren Tracey, age 15, Peoria, Ariz. (living in Seattle this summer)

Photo taken: June 28, Golden Gardens Park, Seattle

Photographer's description: "A number of sailboats all set out right as the sun was reflecting off the (water). They were so close to the shore that it made for a magical experience that I feel was captured in the photo. This is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken and I hope you enjoy it! "

Expert says: "Really beautiful moment on the Sound! The blue sky is rich and contrasts well with the bright sun on the boats. The horizon appears to be a little off level; adjust a bit and the picture will be cleaner. Maybe even crop more tightly so there is not as much beach in the bottom right. Looks like a great night to be on the beach."
