This is a shot of our eldest two (on the left) playing with two of their cousins, and what I like about this shot is that despite the fact that our two are ten and almost nine this shot typifies the way that children, even though ostensibly playing with one another, often seem to be totally absorbed in their own small part of the game.

As for the technicalities: this was exposed for the sky but I also increased the contrast by dropping the brightness of the shadow areas; i.e. the image is now more of a silhouette than the original.

Oh, and I'm guest posting over at Still Memory today. Thanks Irina for the invite :-)
