Photographer: Meg Wakeman, Seattle

Photo taken: Aug. 6, Green Lake

Photographer's description: "The 48th annual ‘Hope to Hiroshima,’ commemorating all victims of violence, was a lantern-floating ceremony held at Green Lake. The calm water created luminous reflections of the lanterns on its surface. Taken with Canon 5D Mark III, f/2.8, 200mm, ISO 12800, 1/160th second."

Expert says: "The shallow depth of field makes it appear the lanterns go on forever. I love how the lanterns in focus are kind of separated from the bunch and are reflected on the black-glasslike lake. This is a beautiful and serene photo that represents the ceremony very well."

-- Katie Greene, Seattle Times photo staff
