    I snapped this one, but I am concerned that the bright areas are over exposed. I am on a trip so I only have my laptop. Does this work? Is the overall contrast okay? This is prephotoshop.

    Also, what about the composotion, framing. Enough curb? Cut off at knees work?

    I like the shot, I think it works compositionally as it is, but it just needs the highlights on the leading feet (both boy and girl) got under control. The front boot and front foot are blown, they may be rescuable in PS, but it'd be quite a tricky and fiddly job.

    The rest of the scene looks well exposed and the lighting looks to be pretty good.

    I agree with Rob. Composition looks good. I did pop it into PS, expecting the foot and boots to be completely blown, but there is at least a little bit of differentiation there. Not a lot to work with, though. I'd probably balance out the shrub's exposure is PS also.
