Comments: This was really a grab shot taken at the end of a day's filming. I'd been photographing the young boy for several hours. Finally his grandfather came by to escort him home. I was packing up my gear when I noticed this scene and quickly dropped to one knee and snapped this photo with whatever camera I could grab.
The subjects are strongly backlit and my hurried exposure was a little under, both factors that caused the subject's backsides to lack detail. Also, the bright sky background was somewhat featureless. Both of these problems were mitigated nicely with Photoshop's shadow / highlight tool found at Image > Adjustments > Shadow/Highlight. HC
