Photo of the Day: The sensation of flying

The sensation of flying, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
Here's another picture of my cute nephew, Matthew, and his mother Jennifer, at our home for Grandpa and Grandma Mettler's birthday party. I saw Jennifer playing with Matthew and fired off a set of shots, this one being my favorite; might have been even better if I had been a step or two further back, so the picture wasn't so tightly cropped, but at the same time I really like the close up look on the faces of mother and son. The lighting is interesting, too--I believe I bounced the flash off the ceiling, and you can see a bit of haloing on the top of Matthew's head, as well as glints of amber light on Jennifer's lips and teeth. The colors started out a bit flat, too, and I wonder if that's because of reflection off the red and tan walls in our living room. I was able to correct most of it, fortunately, by adjusting the color temperature and tint of the original raw image.

Here's another photo from the same evening in the same setting, with the same color challenges.
