Photo of the day: Bean bag brothers

Here's another photo from this year's Suter Reunion: David and Daniel participating in the beanbag toss. I love this perspective, and I love the way the light rims the boys' hair, the way the target hole frames the image, and even the way the rectangular aspect includes a bit of the support in the lower left, with the bright part of the image slightly off-center. I also like the way the image captures the personalities of my sons, standing side by side in their near-matching shirts. It makes for a good portrait.

Here's another image of just Daniel. I like the framing better on the photo above, and the fact that it includes both sons, but this one has the advantage of showing the beanbag, so there's a little more context to the image. I did capture a few with the beanbags in the air, but all of them obscure the face of the person throwing the bag, unfortunately.
