2012 Project 365 Day 059

Day 059 Bedtime Reading -- Yes, I nearly let the day go by without doing anything for my Project 365!  Tonight when I followed my kids upstairs, toting my camera, I found my oldest reading Velveteen Rabbit to the other two.  First I tried taking a photo from the stairs to capture them all in the unobserved candid style.  (What's it called?)  Then I tried a few other angles closer up and this is my favorite, though I wish I could have fit all three in the frame.  50mm  Manual  f/2.2  1/20sec  ISO1600  In Lightroom, I slightly increased exposure, recovery, and contrast, and then, even though I had shot it on tungsten white balance, I hit that in LR too, and that helped.  I think something more could be done to improve the way their faces look, but I'm not sure what.
