Because the boys (son and grandson) were in too harsh a shadow, I couldn't do much with this one other than let them go into silhouette against the background of Yosemite Falls and the Valley. I dunno. It is odd enough that I kept it. Thanks for your thoughts on the matter.

I do like the B&W approach. And having seen the adjustments that Andrew applied I think its all a matter of taste and what to emphasize. in the original version, the overwhelming nature attracts all attention. The silhouettes emphasize the humility of mankind in the scenery. Once the figures have been brightened up, they become the main subject to me. The image then gets an atmosphere of people enjoying themselves in nature.
