    I agree with Your Shot producer Matt Adams who previously commented, "I love that you decided to get closer and capture just a few faces of the graduates as well as their reactions." I feel like I am right there, celebrating with the other graduates. Your photo reminds me how excited I was when I graduated. What really makes the frame is the passing Thunderbirds overhead the tossed hats. Well done!
