Lorinda's children; playing with photographs

The day of my sister's 70th birthday party, I took lots of pictures. This is cropped from one of them. Today, I was reading a new photography book, and the author, Ellen Anon, said ahe liked the Nik Silver Efex Pro software. I got a special offer on this months ago and bought it, but I had only tried it a few times. I have now been experimenting with all types of photos, candids, portaits, and landscapes. Glorious fun! This software isn't cheap, but it is worth every penny. I have used only the presets and have not even needed to try the sliders or change the settings.
This photo is one of my favorites. I took it on June 20th, and it looks slightly vintage, no? The sweet, sweet children. . .
