Here's a hint for aspiring CW photo contest champions: the judges like people. They like smiling people even better. Exotic locales are great, but slap a few smiling faces in front of that tropical paradise and you've got a formula for victory. The photo "British Virgin Islands," submitted to our May contest by community member Middy, has the winning combination of smiles, sunshine, and, of course, sailing. This photo so impressed the judges with its sheer exuberance, they didn't seem to mind that it is slightly overexposed. In the photo, an enraptured girl beams a smile right at the camera. In the background, a pair of women wear smiles just as joyful. Combine these happy expressions with a few sheets and halyards, a mast and boom, choppy blue water, and several degrees of heel, and you've got yourself one magical day at sea.
