    this is a shot from my Fujifilm X10, of a girl celebrating her birthday after the CFA cat show which she participated in holding, with friends coming from Japan, the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. I was invited as the translator there and I felt it was an uncommon opportunity to celebrate someone's birthday in so many cultures, we were quite happy and relieved after days holding such an event for the first time.

    I read your story. Having done so, the photo takes on an additional dimension and I understand the value that this image has to you. Consider cropping-out the stacked buckets on the left side to concentrate the viewer's attention to the little girl and the puppies. Otherwise, it is a fine image and thank you for sharing.

    If you pay close attention to the middle of the centre bucket however, you'll notice that the leash one of the pups is wearing is attached to the bucket's ring.
    Thats the reasoning behind leaving them there. That and a quick reminder of the chaos of the otherwise peaceful looking scene :)
