I daresay the proof of the pudding is in the eating, I really liked 2 and 3 but the parents didn't go for either of these shots which I suppose entirely prooves your point. I did bring a bubble gun along but he ended up staring intently at the bubbles that fell on the grass and looked almost depressed. I see what you mean about the back lighting here. If I had taken the shot you've posted I'd have been worried about blown highlights and the grass being too bright but it obviously really works here. I suppose this is the difference experience brings and how well you know your trade. If I get the chance to do this again I think a damn sight more forethought will be necessary. This is all invaluable advice, I really appreciate it. I think I'll spend the next couple of nights touching up the two keepers I have and re-examining the rest of the shoot to see if there's anything else in there. Thank you.
