Children spin in a magic moment in Paris's Jardin de Tuileries.

The photo, which won first place in the National Geographic 2008 International Photography Contest, "conjures up childhood," said National Geographic senior photo editor Elizabeth Krist, one of the competition's judges.

Judge Maggie Steber added, "The photographer took something we have seen a lot and managed to frame it in a setting that is unexpected. It is very cinematic and creates a scene and an opening. What will happen next?"
