- They were just sitting on the back stoop of the farmhouse watching the world go by. I stopped and shot this candid quickly without trying to pose them. Since they were different heights I averaged the position of their heads along the upper horizontal one-third dividing line. The one distraction is the direct sunlight on the left side of the older boy and especially part of his forehead causing a near specular highlight. The band of direct light on the younger boy's face is not severe, but does not help either.
