Week 45 good to WOW Edit Family

I didn't link my straight out of the camera shot on Monday because I kept hoping to be able to try again...once I'd figured out the angle I needed and where to put the children, that last move caused Huckleberry to hit his back on the kitchen table and SnapDragon to bang his knee on the chair.  Once the boys were crying, Sunflower certainly wasn't going to pose anymore.  Someday I do plan to try this again.

Edit:
All I ended up doing for the edit is lens correction and converting to BW with a preset.  Mostly what this photo needs is a retake...take it with a wider angle lens, dress the kids differently, a slightly different angle to get all of SnapDragon's face, and a much deeper dusting on the photo.  Still I'm happy with the idea and hope to have a chance to perfect it at some point.

The composition on this shot is wonderful! I am SO torn with B&W because I just love the depth it gives but sometimes I'm too afraid to let go of all the color :)
