Cherry Blosom Parade Washington DC
It was funny how people of all ages would beg for an ice cream. I managed to get 3 (I used to play basketball...).
One addition: I gave away all three ice creams...too busy taking pictures and a good way to keep my daughter occupied.
Some info on the Washington DC cherry blossoms can be found here.

I love the hands up in the air, the ice cream flying, the DOF - is just great, the light smooth of the motion...
Very nice picture!

Well captured ;) And I like the crop very much. Very well done.

Nicely taken and framed. I like the absence of faces in this, just a whole lot of anonymous hands outstretched for the icecream. I hope you shared yours! ;)

Interesting shot and quite different in angle and subject matter. I like how you framed only the hands and nothing more...the falling ice cream adds to the shot and gives more context. Well done!

Fantastic capture (the photo...LOL)! The outstretched hands, the flying ice cream...this is just really well done.

richtersl took my comment -- Fantastic capture! Not only that, but the depth of field is great as is the imagery of the hands, the stopped motion, etc. Outstanding image.

WOW, what a decisive moment, It's a fresh idea to shot the hands of thoose people. And i know what grownups would do for a free "anything". Good one

Oh, Nikos, missed this one, I like it very much. It's a very funny angle and the Dof is great. This is really a nice picture, very, very good!
