This is a shot of Finley (left), Harmony (right) and a young boy that they both met at a barbecue we attended recently. As you can see, they had a great time :)
On a more technical note ...
If you've taken a look at the original image you will have noticed that it's quite a bit darker than this version. With the benefit of hindsight I think I probably should have shot a lighter version, and sacrificed some of the background detail, but at the time I decided to expose for the highlights and leave the rest to post-production. That said, the final image does work, but was a lot harder to process than it might have been; particularly in terms of retaining a natural looking tonal balance between the different areas of the image.
