    I wanted to get a quick picture of the boys while my nephew was in town. It was a last minuet idea, really. My only constant soft-box (to match the christmas tree lights) was pretty small, but I made due. I wanted to feather the light and miss the tree, but ended up with some glare due to the angle. The little ones were over sitting, by the time I realized it. So I suppose, this year I will have to embrace the glare!
    Now, for the age old question,
    B&W or color?

    I love color in Christmas photos. I feel like red and green are such a big part of the season. And in this picture, I actually didn't realize they had matching pajamas until I saw it in color.

    And for what it's worth, I like the glare. :)

    I like the color version, #2 better, and FWIW: I didn't notice the flare until you mentioned it.

    Color! And I think you could easily brush off that flare in LR by pulling the shadows way down.
