A few weeks late, but here are the finalists for July's photo challenge, "Emotion." As usual, it was a trial picking out only seven finalists, so I threw in some favorites too (which were also hard to narrow down). Thank you all for sharing your budding talent with me for this challenge, and congratulations, finalists! Please vote for your favorite on the poll in the sidebar.
I love this unique image--it is so full of raw emotion, but from a different vantage point.
This is just dang cute--you can sense the love (and a little bit of sweet awkwardness?) in the shot.

I love the surprise captured in these pretty eyes. Vibrant emotion! Eyes are indeed "the windows to the soul."
This is just lovely. Emotion through song is rarely captured effectively, and I think Sierra did the job with this pretty bridesmaid and her tribute to the wedding. Beautiful!
This photo just makes me smile--the joy in holding that kitty is so evident!
Laughter is one of the best emotions. I love this capture of it.
Sibling love + joy are captured so well with this shot! I can almost hear his giggle.
