There are moments when the light and the setting are just right. We were at a garden birthday party last night for the daughter of some dear friends. The weather this weekend was spectacular, and the kids finally had the chance to run around barefoot through the grass. Here are some of them peeking through a hole in the fence, just before dusk set in. I accidentally set a tone curve on the camera just before this shot was taken, and it came out just right. No processing here at all.

Beautiful, beautiful shot. Now, I need to go look up tone curve and study it.

Wonderful capture of the conspiracies and intrigues of childhood . . and tone curves.

I think this epitomises the nature of children and the manner is what we need to do in order to take in this growth of inquisitiveness and maturity.... All we have to do is look and watch. Really nice REAL moment Michael.

Geez, awesome! I guess after you publish the fisheye book you'll have to do a Childhood book with all your wonderful kid photos.
